Tottenham could lose superstar forward for six weeks due to international commitment

Tottenham Hotspur scramble for options as Heung-min Son prepares to take a leave from the club due to international commitment.

Tottenham will most likely be without their captain, Heung-min Son as they prepare for challenging times ahead. With South Korea all set to participate in the Asian Cup, Heung-min Son will soon take his leave to join his country’s team in Abu Dhabi.

Tottenham Hotspur will be taking on Burnley for their first match of 2024. Moreover, this will be followed up by a showdown against Premier League giants Manchester United. According to The Standard, Son’s last game with the team will be on New Year’s Eve.

The timing of their skipper’s departure could not have been worse. Postecoglou’s team is already spread extremely thin due to injury struggles. Since James Madison has been out due to an injury, Son has been counted on to score and produce for Tottenham a lot more.

With 389 appearances for the club, Heung-min Son is a true Tottenham Spur. Over his career with the team, he has recorded 155 goals and 84 assists (transfermarkt).

The South Korean national has truly shined within Postecoglou’s system and is currently leading the team with 10 goals scored. Heung-min Son is a captain who leads by example and will sorely be missed as he plays for his country in the Asian Cup.

The Lilywhites have a big month ahead of them. If, Ange Postecoglou cannot make the right adjustments in the absence of Son any chances at the title might end up slipping away from the team.
