Son Heung-Min injury fears take a backseat as Tottenham star makes international return
Tottenham star, Son Heung-min, had Spurs fans holding their breath as concerns arose over his fitness while on international duty with South Korea. The images of Son walking with heavy strapping and an ice pack on his knee raised anxiety levels among supporters, fearing a serious injury.
These fears were particularly noticeable as Son‘s presence is critical for both club and country. He not only serves as a pivotal figure in the South Korean national team but is also the captain of Tottenham Hotspur under the management of Ange Postecoglou.
