Son Heung-Min opens up on his injury and coronavirus pandemic
Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-Min has opened up his rehabilitation as he continues to recover from a fractured arm suffered in the 3-2 victory against Aston Villa in February.
The South Korean put in a sensational performance on the night and grabbed a last-minute winner. It came as a shock to know the player would miss the rest of the season having played the whole game through injury.
Speaking to the official site, Son too revealed his initial surprise at finding out the extent of his injury. Thankfully he is on the mend now and has confirmed that he feels okay.
“I’m doing alright, doing what I can do, working hard, trying to be ready to come back as soon as I can”
Son revealed he misses playing regularly before going on to add that the situation pales in comparison to the pandemic spreading across the globe.
The 26-year-old flew back to South Korea for his surgery. Upon his return he was forced to spend time in quarantine, keeping in line with the governmental directives. Son revealed it as not easy, especially on his family but needed to be done considering the situation.
An unpleasant surprise!
Not a single spectator would have guessed that the Spurs star played the entirety of the Villa game nursing an injury. He got injured within the first minute but kept going because the team needed him.
He also expressed his regret that he could not play in the Champions League tie against RB Leipzig. The Germans thoroughly outplayed us in both matches. We could have really used a player of Son’s ability upfront.
