Tottenham’s Heung-min Son provides injury update

Son injured

After Harry Kane was injured at the start of the year, the burden to provide the goals for Tottenham fell largely on Heung-min Son.

The South Korean hasn’t been goal-shy during his stint in north London, and behind Kane, Son is arguably Spurs’ second-biggest attacking threat.

However, the former Bayer Leverkusen star was also dealt an injury blow this term.

Son would score twice as the Lilywhites clinched a crucial 3-2 victory over Aston Villa on the 16th of February.

But the 27-year-old has since been out of action for Spurs, after fracturing his arm in the early stages of the victory over Villa.

Son provides injury update

Son’s injury has forced him to miss some key ties for Tottenham, including two Champions League round of 16 clashes vs RB Leipzig.

It is also worth noting that since Son’s injury, Spurs have failed to win a single game across any competition.

Now, in a recent interview, Son has provided an update on himself, stating that he is doing okay, but he is more concerned with people’s health at the moment:

 “I’m doing alright, doing what I can do, working hard, trying to be ready to come back as soon as I can. I miss the feeling of playing, of course, but at this moment, football is not important. Everyone’s health is most important, and we all need to stay safe.”

Son also detailed how he could feel his injury during the Villa game, but wanted to keep playing:

 “I kept playing, I don’t know how. I could feel it in the game, yes, but it was so important, I didn’t want to say I couldn’t play because of my arm and tried to keep going to help the team.

“I wanted to play in the Leipzig game (19 February), I wanted to play against Chelsea (22 February) as well, but I went to hospital, had an X-ray and couldn’t believe it when I saw the pictures. It was very sad news.

“Anyway, it’s already more than four weeks after surgery now and I’m doing very, very well and working hard to be ready to come back.”
