South Korea handed monumental boost as injury update surfaces on Tottenham’s Son Heung-min

The attacker’s World Cup dreams appear alive and well


A fresh insight into the wellbeing of Tottenham Hotspur and South Korea star Son Heung-min has been provided late on Friday evening.

Wide-man Son, of course, set pulses racing across his home country earlier this week.

This came upon the 30-year-old being forced into a premature departure from Spurs’ Champions League meeting with Olympique Marseille on Tuesday night.

En route to an eventual 2-1 triumph on the part of Antonio Conte’s men, Son was hooked during the first-half of play, owing to a nasty facial injury.

Post-match, it was subsequently revealed that the former Bayer Leverkusen standout had suffered a fracture in his eye socket, throwing his hopes of leading South Korea into this month’s World Cup into major doubt.

Son, in turn, underwent surgery earlier today, in a bid to remedy the issue.

And, evidently, the procedure proved to be an unmitigated success.

This comes amid reports, courtesy of the reliable Mike McGrath and more, that the Tottenham man is ‘as well as could be hoped’, ahead of a period of recovery over the coming weeks.

Son, in turn, is understood to be ‘in line to be fit’ to take his place in Qatar, in positive news for football lovers the world over.
