Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has provided an update on the rehabilitation of Son Heung-min, who has been out of action since 16 February after sustaining a fracture to his right arm in a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.
Son’s injury came as a particularly big blow for the side as Harry Kane was already facing an extended period on the sidelines, and Spurs had failed to sign a replacement striker in the January transfer window.
With Son joining Kane on the treatment table, the Lilywhites were desperately short of options up front and struggled to pick up goals and results.
The pacey wide-man has since undergone surgery back in South Korea and, upon returning to the UK, had to self-isolate due to the initial spread of the coronavirus back in his home country.
When asked about Son in a Q&A, Gold said: ‘Son returned to the UK last week from South Korea and after remaining away from the training ground initially as part of his self-isolation, he was due to begin his rehabilitation at Hotspur Way at the beginning of this week.
‘Then it’s a case of the club working out whether he can wear a soft cast on his arm and then how quickly he can get back into action.’
Spurs Web Opinion
With footballing action looking unlikely to return for at least another couple of months, the likes of Son, Kane and Sissoko may be fully match-fit by the time the season resumes. This suspension has come at the right time for us as it now gives us a realistic chance of finishing fourth as we will be a completely different side with the aforementioned trio in the team.
