The South Korean footballer will take part in the 2019 Asian Cup is leaving back his club once again for his national team.
Son Heung-Min has scored seven goals and provided five assists in the last six games for Tottenham Hotspur.
But the South Korean footballer has answered his nation’s call and will take part in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup tournament in the United Arab Emirates.
This means he will miss at least four matches with the Spurs.
“Sonny leaving any team would be a great miss because he’s a great player,” teammate Dele Alli was quoted by Four Four Two.
“But, at the same time, we’ve got players that have been working hard and are ready to come in.”
“He is obviously in great form and it will be sad to see him go but he will be back and we just keep going. Lucas [Moura] is a fantastic player as well, or whoever the manager decides to put in,” he explained.
“I think seeing him [Son] every day in training, playing with him in games, you can see the quality he has.”
