Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou has confirmed that Son Heung-min is fine.
Tottenham will host Luton Town at Kenilworth Road in Luton, England on July 7 at 8:30 p.m. ET in the eighth round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) season. Spurs are in second place with 17 points, while Luton are in 17th place with four points.
Ahead of the match, Spurs fans are hoping that Son Heung-min is fully recovered from his injury and ready to play. He is currently playing through a groin injury. Against Liverpool, Heung-min only lasted 69 minutes.
“Without an early substitution against Liverpool, there was a risk that one or both Heung-min and James Maddison would miss the game in Luton,” said The Athletic. Son’s determination to play is so strong that he is still on the field. As a result, Postecoglou is keeping a close eye on him.
With the injuries to Ivan Perisic, Brennan Johnson, and Manor Solomon, the Spurs have become even more dependent on Son, so his health has been a concern for everyone. Fortunately, in a training video released by Tottenham on their official YouTube channel on May 5, Son appeared to be in good spirits. He didn’t do any special drills, but participated in training normally.
Heung-min was not able to participate in training ahead of the Liverpool match, but it seems that he has recovered from his injury. “Tottenham are continuing to monitor the problem Son is experiencing, but he is expected to play this coming weekend,” said Liam Thomas, who covers Tottenham for Sky Sports in the UK.바카라사이트
In his pre-match press conference against Luton, Postecoglou was asked about his squad’s injury status, and he said directly, “He’s fine.” Postecoglou also revealed that James Maddison, who like Son has been nursing an injury, has been training normally. Tottenham will be able to prepare for the Luton game without any serious injuries to their main resources.
The news that Son is okay is also good news for the South Korean national team and manager Jürgen Klinsmann. The South Korean national team is in crisis in many ways, and Klinsmann will be eager to utilize Son Heung-min.
However, some critics have questioned the wisdom of calling up Son, who has yet to fully recover from a groin injury. November is the start of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, and while results are important, these trials are more about content than results. It’s also a chance for the team to prepare a Plan B in case Son goes down with an injury.
