Son Heung-min faces spell on Spurs sidelines with foot injury
Son has scored three goals for the Spurs in his five appearances to date, including a brace against Qarabag in Europa Leagues opener.
Welp. Tottenham Hotspur announced via Twitter today that its newest signing, Korean forward Son Heung-Min, sustained an injury during Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Manchester City this past weekend and is being “reviewed”.
But the £22m arrival of Son Heung-Min at Tottenham and the explosive start made by the former Bayer Leverkusen forward has nicely set up this clash of the compatriots at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
And Spurs, who face Monaco in the Europa League tomorrow night, are facing an anxious wait to discover the extent of Son’s injury.
“Our medical staff will monitor his progress during his rehabilitation in order to determine when he will be fit to return to training.”
The player subbed on for Son in that game, Clinton Njie, is likely the Spurs squad member most likely to benefit from Son’s absence.
Swansea City’s Ki Sung-Yueng established himself as Asia’s ace in the biggest league in the world after a stunning season back at the Liberty Stadium last term where he collected the club’s player of the year prize. Pochettino said. “I think that it will be a few weeks, but it is an injury that we need to assess every day”.
“I explained before the Sunderland game that Son can play like a striker”.
