Son Heung-min 31, who played in the Asian Cup matches, will train as soon as he returns to Tottenham. Local sources predicted that Son will likely be deployed immediately for this weekend’s game.
Son Heung-min immediately headed to England, where his team is located, after playing the semifinal match 0-2 loss against Jordan in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation AFC Qatar Asian Cup at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Alayan, Qatar, on the 7th.
The failure to advance to the Asian Cup finals is a very disappointing result for South Korea, but Tottenham will be able to use Son Heung-min faster than expected.
Tottenham will play a home game in the English Premier League EPL against Brighton on the 11th. Tottenham, which is in fifth place with 13 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses 44 points, wants to narrow the gap with Aston Villa 46 points.
Tottenham had two wins, two draws and one loss in five games without Son Heung-min.
Foreign media “The Athletic” announced, “Son Heung-min will return to Tottenham training ground on the 8th Thursday.”
European soccer statistics site ‘Huscoord Dotcom’ went one step further and included Son Heung-min as a left winger in the expected starting lineup against Brighton.
Son has started all matches six matches at the Asian Cup. Given his physical overload, it is not possible to conclude whether he will play against Brighton, but local experts predict that Son will play in the upcoming match against Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min greeted Korean fans as soon as he arrived at Tottenham on the 8th.
He said on his social media account, “I was too late to thank you because I was all focused on the game while playing the Asian Cup that many people had been looking forward to,” adding, “I felt heavy and sad to return to London after the game, but I arrived safely.”
He then said, “I think I wasn’t good enough as a captain, and I didn’t lead the team well. Even in this situation, I was so proud to be a Korean soccer player for giving me so much love and support. Thank you and I’m sorry.” 토토사이트
