Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min will self-isolate himself for two weeks after his recent return from South Korea over the Coronavirus threat, MySportDab reports.
The Striker returned to Korea earlier this month for a surgery on his arm after breaking it against Aston Villa in th Premier League.
understands Son traveled back home before the authority protocols were put in place concerning travel to and from South Korea as the world bids to combat the deadly virus.
The Spurs star is determined to overcome the injury he sustained in Tottenham’s thrilling 3-2 win at Villa Park earlier this month.
But for now, Son will keep away from the club’s Enfield training ground for two weeks, meaning he can’t make contact with his team-mates amid fears of the coronavirus.
Tottenham Coach Jose Mourinho confirmed that the club are following all legal and medical advice regarding the situation.
‘I think the usual advice comes from the authorities, comes from the leaders. I’m not making any comment, I’m nobody, I’m not a specialist,’ he said.
‘I just get legal advice and what my club gets from authorities, and we follow. That’s why I’m saying that Son when he’s back from Seoul he would have to follow the protocols and we are not going to have him immediately here.
‘Where he will be? I can’t be specific with that, I just know we have to follow the safety protocols.’
Before Mourinho’s pre-match press conference, the media were demanded to sign a document to confirm that they had not traveled to any Asian country, including South Korea.
This comes after Spanish club Valencia announced its decision t postpone all non-football related events because a fan who returned from Italy was infected with the coronavirus after watching his team play Atalanta in the Champions League.
