Report: What Davinson Sanchez did just before Heung-Min Son came on for Tottenham last night

Son Heung-min made a return to action for Tottenham last night and a report from Football London has explained what Davinson Sanchez did for the South Korean.

It’s been a tough time of things for Son. He fractured his eye socket playing for Tottenham ahead of the World Cup and he was considered a doubt for Qatar.

In true warrior fashion, however, he ensured he was fit to play for South Korea. They squeezed through by beating Portugal but then suffered embarrassment at the hands of Brazil in the last 16.

Now, Son still has to wear his protective equipment. From a Tottenham perspective though, they will merely be glad that his injury hasn’t sidelined him completely.

A report from Football London claims that Sanchez performed a heartwarming act before Son entered the fray against Nice.

It’s claimed that he helped Son tighten his protective mask as he could see that the South Korean was struggling with doing it himself.

Tottenham return to Premier League action on Boxing Day. They face Brentford in a London derby and Antonio Conte will hope that Son is fit and ready to fire.

Son made Tottenham return and Sanchez did something lovely

Tottenham star Son is arguably the most likeable player in the whole division. He’s an emotional character who constantly wears his heart on his sleeve.

It seems clear from this moment of warmth from Sanchez that he’s a respected figure inside the dressing room too.

Son has been with Tottenham since 2015 and it’s fair to say that his stock couldn’t really be higher at the club right now.

He’s scored 136 times from his 344 appearances and also claimed 76 assists for Tottenham.

There is life left in the 30-year-old at Tottenham and alongside Harry Kane, he’s arguably the most important player at Antonio Conte’s disposal.

This embrace showcases that the team spirit isn’t lacking at Tottenham and hopefully the team can kick on for the remainder of the campaign.
