According to Paulo Bento, he fears the Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min might not be ready to play in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min has traveled to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to play in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

And South Korea boss Paulo Bento fears he is overplayed.

“Of course we know how many matches and minutes he has played over the past month,” Bento told The Malay Mail.

“He’s probably never played as many games in a row as he has recently. It’s only his second day with us so we will need to check his condition tomorrow before we make any decision on him.”

“He’s a very important part of the team obviously,” added Bento.

“But we won’t take any risks and we also have other options.”
