Tottenham Hotspur fans will be well aware that key player Son Heung-Min was given an exception to his extended 21 month South Korean military service as he helped them to lift the 2018 Asian Games trophy, but the 27-year-old does still need to complete a normal four week service under the laws of his country.
With football paused at this moment in time, it’s been confirmed today that he is in talks with the club over using this period to get that requirement out of the way, and Sky Sports have reported that he could complete the mandatory service if the Premier League confirm that games will be suspended beyond April 30.
Should Sonny Get This Out The Way Now?
Get It Done And Dusted
Complete His Full Recovery First
Sonny is back at home in South Korea at the moment having been given permission by the club to leave London for ‘personal reasons’ during the lull and he continues his recovery from the fractured arm he sustained in our win over Aston Villa back in February – but it certainly makes sense for him to get this out of the way now, as few expect football to return at any time soon.
