Son Heung Min is at risk of contracting Covid-19 after 4 Korean players are positive.
South Korea is in a state of turmoil, while the team gathered in Austria to prepare for two friendly matches against Mexico and Qatar. According to news from the press of this country, 4 players Jo Hyun-Woo, Kwon Chang-Hoon, Hwang Inbeom and Lee Dong Joon along with one of the team’s entourage were Covid-19 positive and had to be told immediately. glass.
The source said that the Korean Football Federation (KFA) tried to create a safe gathering area for the country’s team, but in the end things were not guaranteed. The station was a hotel but the nearby training ground was an open training ground and could be accessed by outsiders, and the locals were quite indifferent to wearing masks. Goal.com page even took photos of the Korean team practicing and a stranger was still running on the field.
It is known that the location that the KFA has chosen for South Korea to be stationed is actually in an area that was recently blocked by an outbreak, so they had to change locations urgently. In addition to the new destination being a place where epidemic prevention is loose, the KFA has also been criticized for choosing Austria to focus on while they have done a good job of epidemic prevention in the K-League (all year), only 1 player is positive).
And the issue that is of greatest concern to Premier League fans in general and Tottenham fans in particular is Son Heung Min. According to journalist Lee Hanshin working with Korean Tel, Son has been in contact with one of the positive players and he is currently on quarantine to wait for the test results.
In the very lucky case, Son will also have to quarantine for 1 week, that is if 2 or 3 consecutive test results show he is negative. If the striker is positive, he must be isolated for 14 days before being tested again.
Immediately after the gathering of this team, Son Heung Min will join Tottenham to welcome Man City on Saturday night, November 21 in the Premier League. If there is at least 1 week of isolation, Son will almost certainly not be able to attend this important great battle, a match where if he wins Tottenham will temporarily climb to the top of the table while Leicester City prepare to meet Liverpool (Sunday night).
