Mauricio Pochettino says the decision to send off Heung-Min Son against Everton following Andre Gomes’ horror injury was “completely unfair” to the player and Tottenham.
Spurs were leading 1-0 when Gomes suffered a serious ankle injury, which caused huge distress to the surrounding players. Son had tackled Gomes the moment before the injury occurred and was deemed to have put in a dangerous challenge.
But replays showed it was a freak incident, suggesting VAR should have intervened and Son shouldn’t have been sent off. Inevitably, Everton went on to equalise with their man-advantage.
