Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-min Son has admitted he played despite the pain in the final weeks of the season and needs to rest now to be fully present in the World Cup in Russia.
Son admitted six weeks of painkillers isn’t something totally unfamiliar to the football players, but admitted he was happy that he could play through the whole season and mainly he for the fact that he avoided injury.
“I really played a lot this season, but luckily I had no big injuries and gained some experience,” Son said, according to 101 Great Goals.
“I did take painkillers for the last six weeks to play in matches, but there aren’t footballers who are free from injury. I’ll take some rest this week, and I’ll be fine.”
“I don’t know which German players will compete against us, but I know I’ll talk with some German players after the match.”
“It was my dream to play against Germany on the big stage, so I need to be very well prepared for the match,” Son revealed.
