Opening up on how his experience was during the training on the island of Jeju in the latest matchday programme, Son said (h/t Football.london):

“This is my life. Football is my life, what I enjoy most. I was thinking everyone should be healthy, stay safe, that’s the most important thing. But, for me, it was also a bit painful, not seeing my friends, not training with the guys and not being able to enjoy football.”
