Shock new details of Son Heung-min's bust-up with team-mate that left Tottenham star injured emerge

Shock new details of Son Heung-min's bust-up with team-mate that left Tottenham star injured emerge

More details have emerged.

New details of the incident that saw Son Heung-min suffer a dislocated finger have been reported by Korean media.

Son has been seen with two fingers on his right hand taped up during matches, including in South Korea's 2-0 defeat to Jordan in the Asia Cup.

The Sun claimed that the injury was sustained on international duty, with Son originally unhappy that several players had left their evening meal early to play table tennis.

A source told the outlet that 'a few disrespectful things' were said towards the Tottenham star, who then 'badly injured his finger trying to calm everyone down' when a row broke out between several players.

Now, Yonhap News have reported further details surrounding the incident.

According to a 'source familiar with the incident', a table tennis game had begun involving Paris Saint-Germain star Lee Kang-in, Ulsan HD defender Seol Young-woo and Stuttgart midfielder Jeong Woo-yeong.

It is then claimed that Son asked the players to keep the noise down, as he had arrived with other players for the evening meal.

The report then says that the younger players would not listen, with the source then alleging that Son grabbed Lee by the collar, before Lee then threw a punch which didn't connect with Son.

It is then added that Son's dislocated finger occurred when team-mates tried to separate the pair.

However, a spokesperson for Lee Kang-In's law firm has since stated that the claim that Lee Kang-In threw a fist in Son's face after the Spurs forward grabbed his collar is 'different from the truth'.

In addition, they add that senior players were also present playing table tennis.

In a statement to Yonhap News, a Korean FA spokesperson confirmed that an incident took place: "It happened when some young players went up to play table tennis, and Son Heung-min and other older players took issue with it.

"The players exchanged a few words and Son hurt his finger in the process."

Meanwhile, Lee has since apologised for the incident on his Instagram story, although did not enter into specifics surrounding the nature of what occurred.

He wrote: "It has been reported in the media that I had an argument with Son Heung-min before our semi-final match at the Asian Cup.

"I have caused great disappointment to fans who always support our national team. I am really sorry.

"I should have set an example and listened to older team-mates. I'd like to apologise to many people who must be disappointed in me."

SPORTbible has contacted the representatives of both Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in for further comment.
