Son Heung-min flies back early to Tottenham ahead of Man City clash

According to Goal.com’s Steve Han (h/t Evening Standard), Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min has flown back to London earlier than expected after his involvement with the South Korean national team.

Son had travelled to Austria for South Korea’s friendly encounters against Mexico and Qatar. During his time with the national team, the 28-year-old had been hit with a coronavirus scare, as five of his teammates tested positive for the virus. (h/t Evening Standard)

Following the fixture, the South Korea players were scheduled to fly back to their respective clubs on Wednesday. However, Tottenham had different ideas as the club sent out a private jet for the 28-year-old just a couple of hours after the friendly game against Qatar ended. (h/t Evening Standard)

This was confirmed when Son posted an image of himself at an airport on Tuesday afternoon on his social media, as he prepared to board a flight.
