Coronavirus scare for in-form Tottenham star as outbreak hits national team



Son Heung-min scare for Tottenham as COVID outbreak hits South Korean team

As reported by the Daily Mail, Tottenham star Son Heung-min has been confined to his room when not training after some of his South Korea teammates tested positive for coronavirus on international duty.

The South Korean national team were playing their first international fixtures of 2020, with friendly games against Mexico and Qatar being scheduled.

In spite of the positive cases, the friendly encounter against Mexico went ahead as planned, with South Korea losing 3-2 last week. And they are set to face Qatar in the second fixture this Tuesday, with no changes in the schedule.

However, the players that did not test positive for the virus, including Son, have been asked to stay put in their hotel in Vienna and have been instructed to step out only for training, as per the report.

Tests have been conducted again post the game against Mexico, with results due later on Monday. Should there be 13 players that don’t test positive, the Qatar game will go ahead as planned, an official has confirmed. (h/t Daily Mail)

Son Heung-min has been brilliant form for us this season. The 28-year-old, along with Harry Kane, have been the architects of the solid star that Tottenham have made in the 2020/21 campaign. He looked in similar touch on national duty against Mexico, setting up the opening goal for South Korea.

With the outbreak hitting the squad, hopefully Son doesn’t test positive for the virus and the players that have contracted it recover soon.
