Alasdair Gold provides update on the return of Son Heung-Min
In a questionnaire with Football.london, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed the latest on the return of injured superstar Son Heung-Min.
The South-Korean ace had been sidelined with a fractured arm sustained in the 3-2 victory over Aston Villa. Injured in the first minute, Son incredibly played the whole match. He went on to score twice including a stoppage-time winner.
The joy was shortlived as it was later revealed that the player will be out for the foreseeable future due to the injury.
Opening up on the issue, Gold revealed that the player returned from his homeland last week. He initially kept away from the training ground as a part of his self-isolation following the coronavirus pandemic.
The player had flown out to his homeland to meet up with a doctor who had treated him earlier. The decision to isolate himself was taken as a precaution rather than as a reactive measure.
Gold goes on to add that Son was expected to begin his rehabilitation at Hotspur Way at the beginning of this week. The club are currently identifying if he can wear a soft cast and how quickly he can return to action.
The journalist, however, did not give a timeframe for his return and has left his answer vague in that sense.
