“Disappointed”, “He needs this lesson”: Some Tottenham fans react to failure to overturn Son’s red card

Son Heung-Min’s 3 match suspension upheld for violent conduct

Son was sent off in a heated match where he kicked out at Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger after a tussle between the players.

VAR adjudged that there was enough intent in Son’s actions to be sent off. The FA have agreed with the decision upholding the red card which means that the Spurs star will now be suspended for the next three games.

Son will miss the games against Brighton and Hove Albion, Norwich and Southampton in the busy festive period as Spurs aim to launch an assault on the Champions League spots.

Erik Lamela resuming training will come as good news to Jose Mourinho who not only will have to compensate for the loss of his Korean attacker but also rotate the team to keep them fresh. (h/t Football London)

This is Son’s second red of the season and third overall this year. This earns Son the dubious distinction of being only the fifth player in Premier League history and first since Lee Cattermole in 2010 to pick up three red cards in a single calendar year. (h/t The Sun)

Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react to the FA’s verdict.
