Richarlison left buzzing after news about £22m Tottenham player today

Richarlison was left buzzing on Instagram after the news about Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-Min Son’s injury. 

The £22 million man was forced to undergo surgery to stabilise a fracture around his left eye after suffering a heavy blow to the face against Marseille just eight days ago. 

The 30-year-old missed out on Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool as a result and there were serious doubts over whether he would be available for South Korea’s World Cup campaign.

But now Son has confirmed that he will recover in time for the tournament in Qatar and Richarlison is happy about the news. 

Richarlison buzzing after Son news 

Son posted a lengthy message on Instagram today to thank everyone for their support and said he will not miss out on playing in Qatar. 

He wrote: “Hi everyone. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you all for the messages of support I have received over the last week. 

“I have read so many of them and truly, truly appreciate you all. In a tough time I received a lot of strength from you! Playing for your country at the World Cup is the dream of so many children growing up, just as it was one of mine too. 

“I won’t miss this for the world. I can’t wait to represent our beautiful country, see you soon. Sonny.” 

Richarlison responded beneath the post with raising hands and round of applause emojis. 

Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal also replied to show their support for Son.

It’s great to hear that Son will be fit for the World Cup after it seemed to be hanging in the balance before he underwent successful surgery. 

It would have been a bitter blow for the Spurs man to be ruled out with a facial injury right before the tournament. 

He should now be fit to lead his country out as captain for their opener against Uruguay on November 24.
