Tottenham Hotspur striker Sun Hyung-min enjoyed the “tough challenge” during his three-week military service in his country, South Korea.
Sun completed his compulsory service in his country last month, while his club Tottenham activity was suspended while competitions were suspended due to the outbreak of the new Corona virus.
The forced return to the Premier League allowed the North London striker to recover from a fracture he suffered in his hand during Tottenham’s 3-2 Aston Villa victory in February in the domestic league.
Sun was exempted from full military service for two years after his contribution to South Koreas winning of the 2018 Asian Games gold, but he remained required to implement a shorter period.
“It was a good experience, I can’t talk about everything I did, but I enjoyed it, these guys were nice, it was three weeks hard, but I tried to enjoy it,” the international striker said in comments to the official channel, Spears.
He continued: “On the first day the atmosphere was strange, because we did not know each other, but they improved after that. We spent each day together in one room, ten people, we were very close, we worked together, we helped each other, so the period was wonderful.” “Russia Today”.
Tottenham, the Champions League runner-up last season, was eighth before the league stopped, 7 points behind Chelsea, the last official to qualify for the continental competition next season.
