Tottenham Hotspur should be worried about Heung-min Son's 15,000 mile round-trip for international duty

South Korea fans flag in stadium

The South Korean has been called up for international duty despite only just returning from injury.

Another international break beckons and that spells fear for a litany of Premier League managers up and down the country.

One such gaffer who will hoping for his international players to return safe and sound will be Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham Hotspur.

The majority of his starting XI is likely to receive call-ups with the likes of Belgium, Denmark and England.

But the biggest worry will be over summer signing Son Heung-min. The South Korean attacker has been named in the South Korea squad for upcoming games against Myanmar and Laos.

He will travel first to Suwon, then Vientiane, before heading back to Seoul and flying home to London. That is approximately 15,000 miles worth of flight time in a space filling less than a week.

Not ideal for a player who is only just returning from injury.

Son has been included in the South Korea squad despite not playing for Tottenham since the 4-1 win against Manchester City in September after picking up a foot injury. He is set to return for Spurs this week but the club will definitely be concerned regarding his lengthy travelling to face Myanmar and Laos - especially as Korea are taking on teams ranked 163rd and 179th in the world respectively.

Tottenham fans and staff would probably prefer he was left to rest at home.
