Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to optimistically call for their South Korean winger, Heung-Min Son to make a quick return back to the club. The 26-year-old helped inspire his side to a 2-0 win over China in their final Group C match in the Asian Cup to top the group, and now the fans have been begging for him to come back early.
ICYMI – Sonny captained South Korea to a 2-0 win over China today to progress to the #AsianCup2019 knockout stages as group leaders.

Tottenham’s versatile winger would be the man most likely to replace the injured Harry Kane if he was still at the club, so the fact that he;s gone off to captain his country at the Asian Cup is far from ideal. However, it’s something that the fans will just have to live with, and some of them will be hoping that the South Koreans can suffer a shock defeat in the round of sixteen next Tuesday.
Whilst Son is away and Kane is out injured, Mauricio Pochettino will need to get creative as he sets his side up, and it could be one of those where rotation between the likes of Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente is key. However, if the Lilywhites had their wish and Son came back early, it would solve a lot of problems at the injury-stricken football club.

The Lilywhites are desperate to have Son back, and wouldn’t mind seeing South Korea make a shock exit if it meant having their man back early.
