Tottenham slam ‘abhorrent’ racial abuse of Son Heung-min after South Korean forward attacked after Man Utd defeat

TOTTENHAM have released a statement slamming ‘abhorrent’ racial abuse of Son Heung-Min following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The South Korean star came under attack from sick trolls online in the wake of the loss, which dealt a huge blow to Spurs’ top four hopes.

Son was involved in a controversial first-half VAR decision that saw a United goal questionably chalked off.

And the ace has since received vile racist messages on the internet from cowardly trolls.

Spurs put out an official club statement on Sunday night taking aim at the people behind the messages.

And they proudly told Son: We stand with you.

The statement read: “Another matchday and more abhorrent racial abuse suffered by one of our players.

“This has again been reported to the platforms and we shall now undertake a full review alongside the Premier League to determine the most effective action moving forward.

“We stand with you, Sonny.”

Son became the centre of attention when Edinson Cavani put United ahead during a tense first half.

But the goal was ruled out by VAR and the ref’s touchline monitor after replays showed Son collapsing to the ground after being brushed accidentally in the face by Scott McTominay.

Son looked to be in agony during the incident, enraging United.

And he gave the visitors even more reason to fume when less than five minutes later he put Spurs ahead.

However, a second-half capitulation from the hosts allowed United to score three for the victory.

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blasted Son’s behaviour, saying he ‘conned’ the ref with his ‘embarrassing’ actions.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “The game has gone, absolutely gone. If that’s a clear and obvious error, it’s one he [the ref] had to look at.

“It was a perfectly good goal, we shouldn’t be conned. 

“I have to say, if my son stays down for three minutes and needs ten mates to help him, he won’t get any food because that’s embarrassing.

“We weren’t conned, the ref was.”
