Loads of Tottenham fans have reacted to a post from the club’s official account showing footage of Son Heung-min giving an interview at Enfield.
Son spoke extensively about his military service and how it feels to be back training with his teammates. Spurs shared a clip on Twitter, with the caption “I’ve missed the guys. When I came back, I couldn’t stop smiling, like always!”
Last month, the South Korean returned to training for the first time since the nationwide lockdown began after completing national service with his home country. He impressed army officers and finished at the top of his class (Daily Mail).
As Son was ruled out with a broken arm in February, there is no doubt his return will give Jose Mourinho’s side a massive boost.
Indeed, the 27-year-old is the club’s second-highest goalscorer at the time of writing, only a goal behind star striker Harry Kane, and he has provided more assists than the England international up until now (BBC).
He has scored nine goals and created seven assists in the Premier League, taking three shots per game, averaging 1.4 key passes and attempting 2.3 dribbles on average (via WhoScored).
Unsurprisingly, lots of Spurs supporters gushed over Son’s latest “amazing” interview on social media, with one fan dubbing the video “fantastic”.
Scroll down through some of the glowing reactions so far…
Fantastic guy. His passion for his team mates and his club is awesome. Such a key player for Spurs. Welcome home Sonny.

Can not underestimate how important Son is to this team. Not only for his footballing skills but also for his motivation and love for the club, players and fans.
