Tottenham Hotspur forward, Heung Min Son, was visibly distressed after the events at Goodison last night after his challenge resulted in a horror injury to Andre Gomes.
It has since been revealed that the Everton man suffered a broken and dislocated ankle after a combination of Son’s challenge, his foot catching on the turf, and Aurier’s late tackle (Sun).
Gomes was stretchered off and taken straight to hospital, while Son was in tears and barely able to stand when Martin Atkinson gave him a red card, and Aurier was subbed off minutes later.
It has now been reported that Heung Min Son switched his phone off and went straight to his parents’ house after leaving the Everton ground (Sun).
The Athletic add that Son did not want to engage with anyone after the accident.
As we reported earlier, Tottenham will now offer the player psychological counselling after the trauma of last night (Daily Mail).
It remains to be seen whether the red card will be rescinded or how long it will be before Son returns to training.
