Tottenham confirm the extent of Heung- Min Son injury
The striker might be out for the season

The South Korean forward who has been the 2nd leading goalscorer for Spurs this season suffered a broken arm injury while playing against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Tottenham striker Heung-Min Son is facing at least a month on the sidelines due to the broken arm injury he suffered at Aston Villa on Saturday.

The South Korean international was the victim of a first-minute challenge with the home side’s Ezri Konsa in but went on the complete the whole ninety minutes.

Son didn’t let his injury stop him from scoring a brace as Spurs came back from behind to record a 3-2 victory thanks to a stoppage-time winner from the 27-year-old.

His injury would be a massive blow to the top-four hopes of the North London club as the club currently sit just one place behind Chelsea who occupy the last Champions League place in the table.

According to a statement which the North London club released on their website, the 27-year-old will be needing surgery to get back to full fitness.

“Heung-Min Son is to undergo surgery this week after sustaining a fracture to his right arm,” a Tottenham statement on the club’s official website read.

“The South Korea international suffered the injury during our win against Aston Villa on Sunday.

“Following surgery, our medical staff shall be reviewing management options for Son’s rehabilitation with the player expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks.”

The statement all but confirms that the striker would miss crucial games against Chelsea and Manchester United in the Premier League and a two-legged R16 clash with RB Leipzig in the Champions League over the next month.

How will Spurs cope with his injury?

Jose Mourinho faces a massive headache as he tries to find the replacement of the striker who has been his team’s main threat since Kane was ruled out due to injury.

Since the England international was ruled out last month, Son has six goals in five games in all competitions for the North London outfit.

New signing Steven Bergwijn, who joined Spurs in a 27m transfer from Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven last month, is the most obvious replacement of the South Korean.

The Dutch attacker announced his arrival in English football in grand fashion as he scored on his debut against reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

That remains the only goal the 22-year-old has managed to score in Spurs’ colors but Mourinho faces no choice but to let the forward lead the line against RB Leipzig later this week.
