Tottenham Hotspur announced today that Heung Min Son fractured his arm against Aston Villa at the weekend, despite playing on and scoring the winner in the 93rd-minute.

While Spurs claim the forward will be out for weeks, other sources disagree and say that Son will likely be on the sidelines for months (Dan Kilpatrick).

This comes at the worst possible time for Tottenham, as Harry Kane is still nursing his way back from a ruptured tendon and his own surgery.

Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn remain the only options up front in the senior side, although neither are out-and-out strikers by a long shot. Young Troy Parrott remains an option within the youth ranks.

Mourinho claimed in his press conference today that nothing could be done about the situation with the transfer window now closed.

All he asked was that the Spurs fans get behind the players still on the pitch for the remainder of the season.

Jonathan Veal claims he said:

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This is a longterm issue that has now come back to bite the backside of THFC. Levy’s reticence in the transfer market is the underlying cause of Tottenham’s widespread failures this last few years, and has essentially been frankly inadequate to sustain the clubs position or indeed future growth. If Spurs continue along the same path, sooner or later this faltering giant will abjectly fail, and the club will no longer be able to marry its ambition to any notion of achieving success. So if there is any message to the board as the controlling body, it’s that they must cease with this ‘cul de sac’ penny pinching philosophy of Levy’s which ultimately detracts from the possibility of achieving real progress as a contending football club
