“Son Heung-min wanted to go to the World Cup, so he had surgery for an orbital fracture,” said Son Woong-jeong, father of South Korean soccer team captain Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham Hotspur).
tvN’s ‘You Quiz on the Block’ released a preview video on the 11th of an interview with director Son Woong-jung ahead of the broadcast on the 14th.
When MC Yoo Jae-seok said, “Son Heung-min played the game wearing a mask,” coach Son Woong-jeong said, “(The son) asked to move the surgery date forward.” So the swelling went down quickly. That much (to participate in the World Cup) was desperate,” he said.
He said, “It is a dream of soccer players to wear the Taegeuk mark on the left side of their chest.”
On the 2nd of last month, Son Heung-min suffered a facial fracture when he hit his face on the shoulder of Chancel Mbemba (Marseille) while 메이저놀이터 competing for an aerial ball during a European Champions League match. As a result, it was unclear whether he would participate in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but he underwent surgery in two days and participated in the World Cup in Qatar in three weeks. Son Heung-min, who had not fully recovered, devoted himself to the World Cup while wearing a mask.
Joon-ho Wang, a professor of orthopedic surgery at Samsung Seoul Hospital, who was the attending physician of the Korean national team, said on YTN’s ‘News Rider’ on the 8th, “Usually, narcotic painkillers or strong drugs are used for 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, but Son Heung-min was excluded from anesthesia on the day of surgery because of doping and drug testing. And I only took Tylenol, which is the weakest pain reliever, and endured it,” he said.
He continued, “The player’s will was so strong and his heart for the people was so strong that it was difficult to stop him.” “Fortunately, the surgery went well. It is fortunate that I have recovered without any aftereffects such as double vision (a phenomenon in which objects are seen as two).”
Even so, he asked, “When I have free time, I want to go to the ophthalmologist and check it again.”
