Everton: Fans blast Son Heung-Min for ‘revenge tackle’ after horror injury for Andre Gomes

Everton fans have slammed Tottenham winger Son Heung-Min after his tackle during their 1-1 draw at Goodison Park resulted in Andre Gomes breaking his ankle.

The South Korean forward was sent off by referee Martin Atkinson during the affair after his attempt to try and stop the Portuguese midfielder breaking on the counter-attack with a reckless tackle.

Should Cenk Tosun be playing more?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, his rash challenge resulted in Gomes falling awkwardly and suffering a fractured dislocation of his right ankle.

The incident sucked the atmosphere out of the Goodison Park roof as the distressed look on players and staff around Gomes was enough to tell the story as to what had happened.

Goals in the second half from Spurs’ midfielder Dele Alli and a 97th-minute equaliser from Toffees’ substitute Cenk Tosun meant that both sides shared the spoils, but those goals will be forgotten about after Gomes’ trauma.

One fan said that it was a “revenge tackle” from Son and that he was a “disgrace” of a footballer.
