'Problems': Antonio Conte says £22m Tottenham player has not trained for two days because he's so ill

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has admitted Son Heung-min has not trained for two days because he’s so ill.

Conte told Spurs Play that a fever has impacted the group and that Englishmen Oliver Skipp and Djed Spence have also been impacted.

Son has missed the last two days of training, while Spence and Skipp missed yesterday’s session as Spurs gear up for the return of the Premier League.

Conte says Son, Spence and Skipp have a fever

Conte said: “I have to be honest we have some problems with some players.

“Because Sonny, in the last two days he didn’t have a training for the fever.

“It was the same today for Skippy and Spence.

“Many players have a bit of stomach problem.”

Son has been pictured training at Spurs with his facemask on as he continues his recovery from the facial injury which put his participation in the World Cup in doubt.

The £22 million man played on and got to the last 16 of the World Cup, where South Korea were beaten 4-1 by Richarlison and Brazil.

Now, it seems he is a major doubt for the friendly tonight, although he will hope to be recovered by the time the Brentford game comes around.
