Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min’s red card for the tackle which left Everton midfielder Andre Gomes with a horror injury has been overturned by the FA (Football Association).
.The South Korean forward was sent off in the second-half following a naughty challenge on Gomes which resulted in the Portuguese midfielder suffering a nasty fracture dislocation of his right ankle.
However, the FA decided to overturn the 27-year-old’s ban as a tweet from the FA read, ‘Heung-min Son will be available for Tottenham Hotspur FC’s next three domestic fixtures after an independent Regulatory Commission upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal. The forward was sent off for serious foul play during the Premier League fixture against Everton FC on Sunday 3 November 2019.’
The incident during Sunday’s game shocked the world of football as the Toffee’s star lay injured on the turf. But replays did appear to show there was no intent from Son to intentionally hurt his opponent.
Son made the challenge from behind and did not win the ball and in the aftermath, Gomes collided with the on-rushing French right-back Serge Aurier. It appeared that the former Gomes got his foot caught in the turf which resulted in the horrific injury.
Following the incident, Son was stated to have been left devastated by the injury to his fellow professional, and the North London giants have offered the player counseling to help him recover psychologically from the incident.
