According to the global sports media “The Athletic,” Tottenham will rest without any overseas training until the FA Cup’s round of 32 round against Manchester City on the 28th after an away match in the 21st round of the Premier League against Manchester United (Manchester United) on the 15th (Korean time).
The media said, “With the third round of the FA Cup over, the Premier League will resume, but only half of the 20 teams will play. This period will come as a relief for managers and players,” adding, “Tottenham is another club that decided to stay at home after an away league match against Manchester United on the 15th.”
“After the break, Tottenham will meet Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup and resume their activities. Until then, they hope that injured players will return, and they will probably be looking forward to new faces through some new contracts,” the media said. Some clubs and others will leave for off-season training, but Tottenham will rest well in London and condition itself at the world’s best training ground.
However, captain Son Heung-min is an exception from the rest line.
Son Heung-min has already left his team to participate in the Asian Cup in Qatar. The Asian Cup will be held for about a month from the 12th to the 10th of next month, and Tottenham will inevitably have a gap of Son Heung-min. If Korea reaches the final, Son will miss five matches from the match against Manchester United on the 15th, against Manchester City on the 28th, against Brentford on February 1, against Everton on February 3 and against Brighton on February 11.
South Korea will play its first Group E match against Bahrain on the 15th, Jordan on the 20th and Malaysia on the 25th. If South Korea is eliminated from the group stage, Son Heung-min may be able to play in the FA Cup match against Manchester City, but South Korea, which is considered a favorite, is unlikely to be eliminated from the group stage.
