Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min was subbed off in the 76th minute in his side’s win over Luton Town last weekend. There were concerns over the South Korea international’s fitness ahead of his country’s friendly tie against Tunisia later today.

On Thursday, we covered claims from the South Korean media that the 31-year-old didn’t train on Wednesday and could be doubtful for today’s clash. A source close to the national team had stated the medical staff will make a final decision on his involvement.

Later that day, the Tottenham star played down any injury concerns and his quotes are relayed by Donga.

On his fitness, he said: “I know many people are worried. I plan to participate in training today [Thursday]. I plan to check my physical condition through training. My condition is improving.”

His comments would certainly please both Ange Postecoglou, with Spurs currently leading the league table and Son a big reason for that. The forward has played a part in his side’s good start to the season by scoring six goals from eight league games.

Last season, Tottenham finished eighth and missed out on all European competition. Son managed 14 goals and six assists from 47 matches.

When discussing his recent form, the South Korea international insisted that he’s keen to shine for the north London club after last season’s disappointment.

“When I won the top scorer during the 2021/22 season, I did my best and had help from my teammates. If I think about how I can help the team, I will gain something from the team. This season, I am just doing my best to make up for last season’s poor performance,” Son explained.
