Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to share his reaction after Heung-min Son’s red card for his tackle on Andre Gomes was overturned by the Football Association.
It was confirmed by the FA yesterday evening that the South Korean will no longer serve a three match ban (The Mirror).
Son tripped Gomes during the second half of the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday which saw the Toffees midfielder fall awkwardly prior to a secondary challenge from Serge Aurier.
The player suffered a horrific ankle injury which left Son visibly distraught by what he had witnessed.
Referee Martin Atkinson initially showed Son a yellow card before he changed it to red and despite being consoled on the pitch by the club’s backroom staff, the Spurs player headed to the dressing room in tears.
Former Spurs forward Gary Lineker has backed the decision to overturn the red card and believes that VAR needs improving.
Son is now available for the next three Premier League games against Sheffield United, West Ham and Bournemouth .
Son wins his appeal against the red card he received on Sunday. Right decision and a kick up the backside for VAR.
