Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son has made it to the Asia Games football final with South Korea, a match he needs to win to be awarded with exemption to two years national service.
The Korean has already missed three weeks of Tottenham football, but fans will see it as a huge success if Son can come away with the gold medal on Saturday.
Unfortunately, the final is played just a day before Spurs’ trip to Watford, so Son will be unavailable for the away game, but he has revealed when he will be back and playing.
Son said: “I’ve missed already three or four weeks and we have the international break before I will be back. I’m ready for that. Even when I don’t play I will be waiting for my chance. We’re one team and I have to be ready to play for my team.
“Of course, it’s a bit different with the weather and the humidity, and the pitches are also different, but I’ll be ready when I go back to Tottenham.”
So, it looks as if Son will be back in time to face Liverpool on the 15th of September?
How happy will you be to see the Son shining at Wembley again?
