For South Korea’s Friday international friendly matchup against Tunisia, Son Heung-min has been selected as a replacement. Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, will be relieved by Jurgen Klinsmann’s choice because the player for Spurs hasn’t been fully healthy lately.
Son’s minutes have been managed by Postecoglou and Spurs in order to prevent him from being overworked; as a result, in the last four games since his latest return from international duty, Son has been taken off in the final ten to twenty minutes of each contest. All at Spurs hoped that Son could be given a respite in order to aid in his recovery from injury because South Korea will play two friendlies during this international break rather than significant qualifications.
Kim Min-jae of Bayern Munich will lead his nation as the 31-year-old drops to the bench for the match against Tunisia at Seoul World Cup Stadium. All parties involved with Tottenham will be hoping that their star player gets the proper amount of rest during the international break so that he is at the top of his game when the Lilywhites return to Premier League action against Fulham on Monday, October 23.
In their final encounter of this international break, South Korea plays Vietnam on Tuesday after playing Tunisia in a friendly on Monday.
Son, a Tottenham star, has recently had to manage his fitness, yet he was still able to win September’s star of the Month honors in the Premier League. The forward overcame Julian Alvarez, Jarrod Bowen, Pedro Neto, Mohamed Salah, Kieran Trippier, and Ollie Watkins to win the award after scoring six goals and aiding Tottenham to several crucial victories throughout the month.
“Son announced that he had won the award in a video message posted to Tottenham’s X account. Son continued, “I’m presently traveling with the Korean national team, but I just learned that I’ve been selected as the Premier League Player of the Month. I just wanted to thank everyone who supported me by voting for me. We want to continue our winning ways, and I can’t wait to see what happens.
