Tottenham fans react to shock Son news

Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min has been named in South Korea’s 23-man squad for this year’s Asian Games, which will see him miss the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

Son represented his country at the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer, and will also be in action in the Asian Games, which begin a week after the start of the new Premier League campaign, which is now only around the corner.

Spurs start away to Newcastle United on August 11, and whilst the Asian Games do not get underway until August 18, Son will be training with his country ahead of the competition.

The Asian Games will not end until September 2, meaning that Son will miss Premier League matches against Newcastle, Fulham, Manchester United and Watford, which is far from an ideal situation.

The Tottenham fans, who have a very high opinion of Son, have been reacting to the situation on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are not best pleased.
