Tottenham in injury scare as Son is pictured with huge ice pack on knee during international break | The Sun

TOTTENHAM star Son Heung-min has been spotted with a huge ice pack on his knee.

The forward is currently on international duty with South Korea.

Son, 31, played the full 90 minutes as his side drew 0-0 with Wales in Cardiff on Friday night.

Jurgen Klinsmann's side are set to face Saudi Arabia in a friendly at St James' Park this evening.

Ahead of the match, pictures have surfaced of Son wearing a huge ice pack on his right knee.

The South Korea skipper wore strapping on the same knee against Wales on Friday, while he has also done so for Spurs this season.

Reporter Sungmo Lee confirmed on social media that there has been no word from the Korean FA regarding a potential Son injury.

Tottenham host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.

And the following weekend they travel to Arsenal for the North London derby.

Son was appointed Tottenham captain last month, succeeding Hugo Lloris.

He has contributed to his side's great start under Ange Postecoglou, scoring a hat-trick in the 5-2 win at Burnley last time out.

The Aussie was glowing in his praise for Son earlier this month when asked whether Spurs' No7 was the reason they didn't sign a like-for-like replacement for Harry Kane.

Postecoglou, 58, said: "It’s not exactly why, but it’s one of the reasons.

"I’ve got a picture in my head of what I want the team to look like and I keep saying that we’re still at the beginning.

"It’s about putting all the pieces together and, at the same time, not neglecting what’s right in front of you.

"Sonny, whether he’s playing central or wide, has got all the characteristics. He can play in any system, but the way we play, he’s ideal."

Spurs also suffered a scare during Argentina's 1-0 win over Ecuador, with Cristian Romero picking up a knock.

Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni has since reassured fans that Romero is okay, and he should be available for Spurs this weekend.
