Son Heung-min was seen pushing Richarlison towards the South Stand to soak up the appreciation from Tottenham fans following the full-time whistle against Sheffield United yesterday.

Richarlison played a key role in Spurs’ dramatic turnaround against the Blades, with the Brazilian coming off the bench to head in a 98th-minute equaliser before setting up Dejan Kulusevski’s 100th-minute winner.

It was a special moment for the striker, who had opened up on his mental health struggles last week and admitted that he plans to seek ‘psychological help’ (Globo Esporte).

Richarlison has the support of his Spurs teammates

According to Football.London’s Rob Guest, the 26-year-old was mobbed by some of his Tottenham teammates after the full-time whistle, with the likes of Son, Perdro Porro, Eric Dier and Fraser Forster said to have made a beeline for him.

The players then gathered in a line, linked hands and ran towards the south stand before jumping for joy to celebrate.

Guest revealed that during the celebrations, Son was seen pushing Richarlison to the front so that the forward could receive the limelight on the back of his heroics.

Spurs Web Opinion

The way the players are all getting around Richarlison is brilliant to see. It is quite clear that the vibe in the dressing room is completely different to what we saw last season, with the squad seeming much tighter. 

That could either be a consequence of the new leadership group headed by Son or due to the change in management.
