Sonny misses “the feeling of playing”
By Ron Carne -

Heung-Min Son has provided a positive update on his recovery from injury, but concedes that he misses “the feeling of playing”.

The 27-year-old was sidelined last month by a fractured arm he sustained during the clash with Aston Villa, a game in which he scored a dramatic late winner.

However, between his rehabilitation and the suspension of fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic, the South Korean international hasn’t played a minute of football since that outing.

Naturally, Son was keen to stress that there are more important things to be concerned with over football currently, but he has provided some positive news on his recovery as he continues to work out at home.

“I’m doing alright, doing what I can do, working hard, trying to be ready to come back as soon as I can,” he said, as quoted by the club site. “I miss the feeling of playing, of course, but at this moment, football is not important. Everyone’s health is most important, and we all need to stay safe.”

The report goes on to note that Son also spent time in quarantine after he received treatment in South Korea on his injury, and he stressed the need to listen to the authorities and their guidance to ensure that there is a swifter recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

“I was in South Korea for two weeks then back to London, another two weeks but, look, it’s so important to respect this situation,” he added. “I was very careful and listened to the doctors. This is very important for everyone at the moment. It was tough but I had my family, so it was fine for me.”

The Premier League season is on hold until April 30 at the earliest, although the campaign has been extended indefinitely to try to allow a conclusion to be reached.

Son will hope that he can be in contention to get back to playing football, along with other injured stars including the likes of Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko.
