TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR has confirmed that South Korean international, Heung-Min Son, has been ruled out for the foreseeable future after he fractured his arm during Sunday’s Premier League victory over Aston Villa.
A short statement from the club explained that Son – who scored twice during the 3-2 win at Villa Park – is to undergo surgery this week after sustaining the fracture to his right arm.
The clubs medical staff will then review management options for the player’s recovery. He is expected to be unavailable to Jose Mourinho for some weeks.
Speaking about the loss of his influential playmaker, Mourinho explained: “I’m not going to count on him again this season.
“The situation couldn’t be worse in terms of options. It’s a very, very obvious situation. There is nothing that you can do. We are going to play with the players that we have available.
“The players are going to give everything, which is what they are doing. In some periods I was worried about not having attacking options on the bench, now it’s not having attacking options on the pitch.”
