Heung Min Son looked emotional after suffering a head injury and was substituted in the first half against Olympic Marseille in the Champions League.
The Tottenham Star collided with Olympic Marseille Chancel Mbemba in a bid to win an aerial ball on Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
The South Koreans receive treatment as former Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez looks concerned over the extent of the injury.
Son got ahead of Mbemba, who hit his head on the Olympic Marseille star. The South Korean was worst affected and could be sidelined for days.
If the head injury is concussed, he will be out for at least six days to comply with FA protocol. The player is now likely to miss Liverpool’s encounter on November 6, 2022.
Antonio Conte’s team will be without Richarlison and probably Heung Min Son this coming weekend.
Tottenham defeated Olympic Marseille by two goals to one to qualify for the next round of the Champions League despite playing the second half without Son.
