Also a good business risk by Levy. He had more leverage during negotiations against a Son who already had missed out on 2 chances at gaining exemption. Furthermore, Son was set to play in an Asian U-23 tournament and Korea were the clear favourites. Would Levy have extended Son's contract if he had to win the World Cup to gain military exemption instead of the Asian Games?I really do think the risk we took giving him a new contract when there was a real chance he was going to have to do military service for most of it is now further paying off.
Sonny remembers and shows the loyalty right back. What a wonderful person with world class skills (if not world class consistency). Absolutely love him.
