Spurs consider appeal over Son's red card in Gomes incident

Adjust Comment Print

Tottenham have appealed to the Football Association against Son Heung-min's dismissal at Everton on Sunday, which led to André Gomes's horrific injury.

Goalscorer Alli said he found Son crying in the changing room after the final whistle. "First of all, I want to send all my best wishes on behalf of the all the team and the club to Andre, his family and everyone because this is a tough moment and we all feel sorry".

"Six month I think would be the best-case scenario but it could take up to a year". He is catapulted from that challenge on to Aurier. Son is not like that, he is not that kind of guy. He is devastated - he was the cause, but it was not his fault.

In a freakish statement, the Premier League, in an attempt to protect the referee and justify the decision, explained: "The red card for Son was for endangering the safety of a player which happened as a outcome of his initial challenge".

Son was sent off for the challenge after the intervention of VAR. Match referee Martin Atkinson was initially set to book the South Korean, though whether he would have been able to continue is doubtful given he was so upset about what had happened to Gomes. The Portuguese footballer was in the midfield taking the ball forward when he was tackled by Tottenham forward Son Heung-min.

Uh oh, it looks like Jungkook (전정국) was involved in a vehicle accident over the weekend, 2nd November to be exact. A police officer in charge of traffic accidents said the case does not involve drunk driving.

While sympathy poured in for Coleman, the Welsh left-back was hung out to dry in many respects after a mistimed tackle that ultimately put a fellow professional out of the game. "It is unbelievable to see a red card", he said. In that situation we need to help because the decision of the referee was a yellow card but the VAR changed the decision.

"It was clear it was never the intention of Son to create the problem that happened afterwards", mentioned Mauricio Pochettino. It is the latest example of it being not clear. We feel devastated, it was so, so hard.

Another long delay followed as Son's stretching tackle on Gomes saw the Portuguese land badly and he collapsed to the ground with his lower right leg bent at a sickening angle. The diagnosis revealed a fracture-dislocation which would require surgery.

But as doctors swarmed onto the field, something extraordinary happened - knowing this could well be a career-ending injury for the Everton star, players began to pray.
