Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son completes his Military Training. Son was exempted from full 21 months of military service because of his contribution at the 2018 Asian Games that saw his country winning gold in football. Son entered the Marine Corps training camp on the southern island of Jeju on April 20 and is now expected to return to England next week.
Tottenham striker, Heung-Min Son has completed mandatory three-week basic military training in South Korea, finishing in the top five out of 157 people in his class and with a perfect record in the shooting.
Sky Sports reports that Son must still complete some community service obligations by 2023 in order to fully complete his military duties. He earned exemption from the full 21 months of military service by helping South Korea to win football gold in the Asian Games in 2018.
Son must still complete some community service obligations by 2023 in order to fully complete his military duties. He decided to carry out his military training while the Premier League is suspended due to coronavirus.
Son will return to London next week but will have to quarantine for two weeks, as per government guidelines. It will be his third separate lockdown since the coronavirus pandemic began and could impinge on a potential return to training.
With the Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ hoping to see the top-flight resume in early June, that could mean a return to group training later this month, which Son could miss.
However, the pandemic has had its benefits for Son, who was set to miss the rest of the season through injury had it not been suspended.
The South Korea international suffered a broken arm in February and returned home for an operation, with boss Jose Mourinho expecting him out for the rest of the campaign. Tottenham players have returned to training at their Hotspur Way base but under strict conditions including staggered shifts for the first-team squad.
Only one member of the squad has been allowed on each pitch at any time, and players have been instructed to travel to the base on their own, with no lifts allowed.
All activity must be conducted with social distancing measures in place and there are restrictions on the numbers allowed at the training centre each day.
