Heung-min Son plays down concerns of a serious injury after admitting he has been taking painkillers since April to help manage a minor ankle problem.
The Tottenham attacker was speaking in Seoul after joining his international teammates for a pre-World Cup training camp. Son has enjoyed another fantastic domestic season [12-goals + six assists] and coach Shin Tae-yong will be hoping he can continue that form heading into the World Cup finals despite a niggling ankle issue. "I really played a lot this season, but luckily I had no big injuries and gained some experience," Son said. "I did take painkillers for the last six weeks to play in matches, but there aren't footballers who are free from injury. I'll take some rest this week, and I'll be fine." South Korea face Mexico, Sweden and holders Germany in Group F and Son will have little time to rest up with friendlies against Honduras, Bosnia, Bolivia and Senegal prior to their opening game in Russia on June 18.
