Paul Robinson has claimed that Heung-min Son’s withdrawal from South Korea’s squad comes as a huge boost to Tottenham since the forward can now focus on being ready for the clash against Newcastle on April 4.
Spurs fans would have feared the worst when Son went down clutching his hamstring at the Emirates and came off less than 20 minutes into the clash.
It has since been confirmed that the 28-year-old’s injury is not as serious as initially feared and that he could be back in action after the international break.
Alasdair Gold subsequently revealed that the Spurs forward, who missed Tottenham’s matches against Dinamo Zagreb and Aston Villa would be staying at Hotspur Way to continue his rehabilitation through the international break.
Robinson believes that the forward now has a great chance of being available for Tottenham’s trip to St James’ Park and expects his return will be a huge boost for the Lilywhites.
The former Spurs number one told Football Insider: “It is great news for Spurs because now he can prepare himself for the Premier League run-in.
“He is a massive player for Spurs. They miss him hugely when he is not there. He has been an integral part of everything they have done this year.”
“The relationship he has with Harry Kane is amazing. Their best partnership is the best in the Premier League and one of the best we have ever seen in England.
“For him to stay with the medical staff at Spurs over the international break is huge.
“That way they can make sure he is right for the next game because it is going to be a hugely important few weeks for Spurs.”

Son started the season on fire but he has blown a little hot and cold for the past couple of months. Hopefully, having this break will help the South Korean recharge his batteries and come back fresher for our final run-in.
