Dislocated Finger Woes -Son Heung-mins Recovery Journey



Son Heung-min reportedly sustained an injury to his finger amidst a confrontation with Lee Kang-in, prior to Korea's defeat to Jordan in the semifinals of the Asian Cup last week. According to local media accounts on Wednesday, the altercation occurred during a team dinner, where tensions flared between the Tottenham Hotspur captain, Son, and Paris Saint-Germain's Lee. 


Sources detailed the disagreement, indicating that Son confronted Lee, grabbing him by the collar, following which Lee allegedly retaliated by attempting to strike Son. It was amidst the commotion of separating the two players that Son's finger was dislocated.   


The altercation allegedly ensued after younger members of the team, identified as Lee Kang-in, Seol Young-woo, and Jeong Woo-yeong, hastened through dinner to engage in a game of table tennis. Reports suggest that their noisy gameplay disrupted the customary pre-match team dinner, leading to a confrontation with Son. 


Sources also indicated that senior players, likely including Son, petitioned head coach Jurgen Klinsmann to bench Lee for the forthcoming match against Jordan. Despite this, Lee was included in the starting lineup the following day, marking a point of contention within the team. 


In response to the incident, Lee addressed the matter via an Instagram story, expressing regret for disappointing fans and acknowledging his lapse in judgment. He pledged to learn from the experience, emphasizing his commitment to supporting the senior players and striving for personal growth. 


Korea's defeat to Jordan in the Asian Cup semifinal, coupled with the controversy surrounding the altercation and subsequent criticisms directed at the KFA and manager Klinsmann, has prompted calls for managerial changes within the organization. The National Team Committee is scheduled to convene to address these concerns, amidst growing discontent among fans. 


Criticism has also been directed at the KFA for its handling of the situation, with some fans perceiving their swift response to reports as an attempt to deflect attention from broader organizational issues.


Meanwhile, Son has returned to Tottenham Hotspur, where he resumed playing against Brighton, contributing to the team's victory despite lingering discomfort from his injured hand. 


Reflecting on his return to club football, Son admitted that the ordeal of the Asian Cup was difficult to discuss, emphasizing the healing power of playing the sport he loves. Despite the setback, he remains determined to overcome challenges and continue making positive contributions on and off the field.
