Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-min has allayed fears of adding to Spurs’ injury crisis.
Son went down injured after a late tackle by Shah Shahiran. The forward writhed around in agony after the challenge but played the entire match.
Son played down any fears about his fitness after the match. He said, “I am fine now, I don’t like to lie down for a long time [on the pitch]. At that moment [I went down] I couldn’t feel anything on my foot”.
Son has suffered other injuries in the past, including:
- Knee injury: Son picked up a nasty knock to his knee in the second half of South Korea’s 5-0 win over Singapore.
- Eye injury: Son suffered a nasty eye injury in the win over Marseille.
- Fractured cheekbone: Son underwent surgery on the fractured cheekbone he suffered in the Champions League win at Marseille.
The Spurs talisman will be 34 by the time the next finals come around in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He sits seventh in his country’s all-time appearance table and is just 23 games away from toppling Cha Bum-kun’s long-standing record.Read More
