Speaking to Football Insider ahead of Jose Mourinho’s press conference, former Tottenham Hotspur keeper and Sky Sports regular Paul Robinson has been left worried by an injury to Son Heung-min – calling it ‘disastrous’ and ‘really bad news’.
Son has been a mainstay for Mourinho this season alongside fellow star attacker Harry Kane, starting 28 Premier League matches whilst bagging 13 goals and nine assists in that time (WhoScored).
Robinson reacts to Son injury for Spurs
The duo struck up a devastating partnership earlier this season, becoming one of the most deadly combinations in recent times, with Son’s absence coming as a huge potential worry for Tottenham.
Tottenham prepare to take on Dinamo Zagreb in their last 16 Europa League second leg tomorrow afternoon, and Mourinho is aiming to cement his side’s place in the next round on the road to a first piece of silverware since 2008.
Commenting on Son’s injury, with the South Korea star forced off before 20 minutes in a north London derby defeat at the weekend, Robinson has called the setback ‘really bad news’ and ‘disastrous’ for Spurs.
“It is disastrous for Spurs,” explained Robinson to Football Insider. “Whenever Kane or Son is out it is really bad news.
“It is obviously a bad one.”
Transfer Tavern take
There’s little denying his knock comes at a bad time with some important matches on the horizon for Tottenham.
Mourinho and Spurs still have a hope of finishing the season strongly, lying six points off the top four places with a game in hand on Chelsea, but they will need all of their star players readily fit and available for the run-in.
