Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has taken to Twitter to give his opinion on Heung-min Son’s red card against Chelsea.
Trailing 2-0 from the first half, Spurs were looking to get themselves back into the Premier League encounter but instead were reduced to ten men
The South Korean was involved in an incident with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger which was reviewed by VAR.
After a lengthy delay, referee Anthony Taylor reached for his pocket and showed Son a straight red for violent content.
The 27-year-old was on the floor with Rudiger standing over him and the Spurs player appeared to raise his boot into the ribs of the German.
Son reacted in disbelief at the incident which left his side with a one-man disadvantage.
Mason also could not believe that the Spurs player had been sent off after claiming that the incident did not do any damage to Rudiger.
Here’s what Mason had to say on Twitter.
I’m sorry but that is not a red card! That isn’t going to do any damage to an opposing player, absolutely none!!!
