South Korea international Heung-min Son is eager to contributed towards Tottenham Hotspur’s season now that he has returned from Asian games duty with the national team. The attacker helped his country claim their second straight title at the games in Indonesia and this ensured that he skipped the mandatory military services which he would have otherwise had to perform.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Son indicated that he is pleased to have been relieved from the army service but that should not hamper his performances with Spurs, he said: “Some players get out of the army and don't care anymore. I don't want to do that, I want to be even hungrier and work even harder. It always pays off. I'm very grateful and thankful and felt sorry for my team-mates and the fans [during the Asia Cup]. I could feel they missed me and I missed them as well. But we won the cup, I'm very happy, and I was very proud to come back to show the fans.”
