Tottenham Hotspur have officially confirmed that Heung-Min Son is to undergo surgery this week after sustaining a fracture to his right arm during Spurs’ big win against Aston Villa on Sunday.
The injury has the potential to end Son’s season, with the Daily Mail suggesting he will be sidelined for six to 12 weeks.
The South Korea international has quickly received messages of support from players across the world and Juventus’ Douglas Costa is among them.
The Brazilian, who joined the Old Lady for £35.2m in 2018, was clearly disappointed to see a fellow dynamic winger suffer such a heavy blow at a crucial point in the campaign.
Costa just posted a short reply wishing Son a quick recovery in response to an update on the forward’s injury setback.
Son has already played a total of 32 games for Spurs in the ongoing 2019/20 campaign and has managed to net 16 goals and nine assists in the process as well.
Needless to say, this will be a huge loss for Jose Mourinho and co. for the remainder of their season, particularly with huge clashes against RB Leipzig and Chelsea looming this week.
