Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Son Heung-min will be out of action for a while.
The South Korean star came off for Steven Bergwijn at the start of the second half of his side's 1-1 draw against Newcastle United.
And the 57-year-old tactician has confirmed that that the winger picked up a hamstring injury and will miss crucial games against Chelsea and Manchester United this week.
Spurs have a date with the Blues in the EFL Cup on Tuesday, September 29 and then will travel to Old Trafford for their Premier League matchday for an encounter against the Red Devils.
In between, they will host Israeli topflight side, Maccabi Haifa in one of the Europa League playoffs on Thursday, October 1.
And Mourinho, who felt disappointed after his team dropped points at home to Newcastle last weekend said:
"It's an injury. We'll have him out for a while. It's his hamstring. He [Son] is just the first one. I imagine Tuesday, Thursday another one, Sunday a couple more, but this is the respect Tottenham gets.
"Tottenham is a big club. Our history in terms of trophies is not as big as other clubs and I realise that I'm coaching with a lot of passion and love.
"I love the club and love to be here. I don't see myself leaving and going to another club because I love it so much, but I realise now the difference between clubs with a big history and not."
Legit.ng earlier reported that Premier League side Tottenham are interested in Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi and they are ready to go for his signature during the ongoing transfer market.
Jose Mourinho and his wards failed to win any title last season and they were also unable to finish among the top four teams on the final League table.
The former Chelsea manager wants to bolster his squad before the start of the coming Premier League season so that Spurs can compete for titles.
