Tottenham fans gutted as update emerges on £93k-a-week star
Tottenham have been handed a worrying injury scare regarding Son Heung-min. The South Korean international has injured his calf during a game against Iraq and has missed today’s game against Lebanon.
Spurs now face an anxious wait to discover whether or not he will be fit for Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men currently sit top of the Premier League and losing Son is a blow.
The versatile forward had begun this season well. He has scored twice in three matches, including the winner against Manchester City on the opening day of the campaign.
Son has been withdrawn from the South Korea squad. The official statement from the nation is that he felt some discomfort in his right calf after the Monday clash.
The Tottenham man captained his team in the 0-0 draw. Nonetheless, South Korea are in a strong position to secure qualification for the next World Cup in Qatar.
Son has been with Spurs since 2015 when he signed from Bayer Leverkusen. In 284 appearances for the club, he has scored 109 goals and claimed 64 assists, becoming a cult hero in the process.
Tottenham fans upset at Son update
This has not gone down well among the Tottenham fan base. They desperately need their attacking talents fit and losing Son would be a massive blow.
Furthermore, Tottenham’s next fixture takes place on Saturday lunchtime, meaning less recovery time for the South Korean superstar.
The £93,000-a-week player is massive to the way in which Espirito Santo plays and the boss will want to have him available.
Spurs face an anxious wait. As a result, it’s fair to say that the recent heatwave isn’t the only thing that has got fans flustered.
Here is what Tottenham fans have said on Twitter as news about an injury to Son emerged earlier today.
