London » South Korean football professional Heung-Min Son from Tottenham Hotspur will use the forced break in the English Premier League to complete his four-week military service in his home country. The Spurs announced on.
At the end of March, Son had traveled to South Korea with the association’s permission for unspecified “personal reasons”, where he is currently in quarantine and recovering from a broken arm. Game play in England will be suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, probably at least until the end of May. Son is scheduled to do military service in May and then return to London.
Military service is mandatory in South Korea and actually takes 21 to 24 months, depending on the type of weapon. Because Son won the gold medal with his country at the 2018 Asian Games, the former Bundesliga professional was released. The former striker of Hamburger SV and Bayer Leverkusen still has to do a four-week short service.
