LONDON (ENGLAND) – Heung-Min Son ended his military service in South Korea and returned to training regularly with Tottenham.
In your country, military service is mandatory for everyone, even for professional athletes.
Son had managed to postpone him for sporting merit, after winning the Asian Games in 2018.
But now, with all the world championships stopped for coronavirus , he hasn't been able to back down.
In fact Son returned home in April to support military service like all the other boys of his age.
The Tottenham footballer told his club media experience.
Korean statements are reported by sport.sky.it.
“It was a special experience – he told the microphones of the official website – I couldn't say everything I did, but I really liked it.
The boys were nice.
It has been three difficult weeks, but I have tried to enjoy an experience that I will never have again.
The first day we didn't know each other and so it was a bit strange – he said – but then we had to spend many days together in a room with 10 people.
At the beginning the boys couldn't even speak to me but afterwards we all laughed and joked together.
I didn't even have a phone – he reveals – I missed the fans.
When I finished the training I couldn't read all the messages from how many they were.
I am really grateful to everyone, I hope to make them happy once back on the pitch. "
