Tottenham Hotspur have now confirmed that Heung-min Son has returned home to South Korea in order to complete mandatory four-week military service and some Spurs fans have wished the forward the best of luck.

Son was initially required to complete two full years of military service (Guardian) but was exempted after he, along with his South Korean teammates, won the 2018 Asian Games gold medal.

With the Premier League being suspended due to the coronavirus and unlikely to return any time soon, it looks like the 27-year-old has taken the opportunity to complete his service without compromising his time on the pitch.

The South Korean was recovering from a fracture that he picked up in the win over Aston Villa back in February.

Tottenham confirmed that Son will start his service later this month and some Spurs fans are happy that the forward is making good use of his time and will come back fit.

Seeing as there is simply no way the season is going to resume any time soon, Son might as well use the time to complete the training. As many fans have pointed out, at least he’ll come back fit if the Premier League does decide to resume around June behind closed doors.
