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.”
The South Korean international went on to thank the club for allowing him to undergo the training between the season and claimed that while it was a tough experience, it was special as well. (h/t Football.london)
