Tottenham Hotspur manager gives fresh injury update for Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero

According to Tottenham’s official website (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has provided an injury update regarding Son Heung-min; however, he suggested that Cristian Romero could make his return to the squad soon. 

Son Heung-min started in the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea. However, the South Korean was substituted in the 79th minute along with Lucas Moura. Conte suggested that he made the substitution, not because of any fitness issue, but to rest them for the last 15 minutes of the match.

It is believed that Son has suffered a hamstring injury during the Chelsea clash. Conte further added that the South Korean star experienced pain the following day. Now, the Italian manager believes, the 29-year-old would be at least out for two weeks until the international break. 

“The day after, Son felt a bit of pain in his muscle, in his leg, and he had a scan. Now we have to make the right evaluations from the doctors. He’s an injury. I don’t know, but probably they could stay without training session until the end of this cycle, before the international break.”

Son would most likely miss the return leg against Chelsea and the next fixtures against Leicester City and Arsenal. Even though Conte anticipated that the South Korean would be out for two weeks, there are concerns in the club regarding the issue, and the 29-year-old could miss up to five weeks worth of action. 

Son Heung-min has often been the saviour for Tottenham this season. The 29-year-old performed extensively when Harry Kane struggled to pick up the form in the campaign’s initial phase.

With nine goals in 25 games, he is the team’s top scorer. Losing him even for a short period is a massive blow for Tottenham.

In contrast, Antonio Conte has provided a positive injury boost regarding Cristian Romero. The Argentine has been sidelined since returning from last year’s last international break. The Italian manager suggested that the 23-year-old has shown improvement and could return to action soon.

“Cristian is improving a lot. We need a bit of patience, it was a significant injury, but now he’s working very well. He will be very important when he’s okay again physically.”

Antonio Conte has chiefly deployed the 4-3-3 formation since taking charge of Tottenham. The Italian manager preferred to have three centre-back pairing during his earlier stints at Chelsea and Juventus. The return of Romero would provide the manager with leeway to deploy his favoured setup.
