‘Severe Punishment’ Notice to Fans of Racism￼
Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham) was attacked again by racial discrimination.
Tottenham said on the 7th (Korean time)바카라사이트, “We condemn the racist behavior of Crystal Palace away fans against Son Heung-min. If the spectator is found guilty, the club will take steps to ensure that he receives the strongest punishment.”
Son Heung-min started against Crystal Palace in the 35th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th. In the 44th minute of the second half when Son Heung-min was leading 1-0, he was instructed to substitute and headed to the bench.
The referee instructed Son Heung-min to go to the touchline on the other side of the bench. It is a revised soccer rule to prevent time delay. The player being substituted out goes to the nearest line, and the player who comes in instead can be put directly on the ground. More than 60,000 Tottenham home fans gave Son Heung-min a standing ovation.
At this time, Crystal Palace away fans gathered in the direction Son Heung-min walked out. They booed Son Heung-min. A middle-aged male fan tore his eyes left and right when he saw Son Heung-min. It corresponds to an act of racism in the Western world that ridicules and ridicules the small eyes of Asians. Others waved their middle fingers and spat out swear words.
The scene was caught on camera and went viral. Tottenham immediately received a senseless racist attack on Son Heung-min. In response, an official statement was issued, pointing out the behavior of the away fans of Crystal Palace.
This is not the first time Son Heung-min has suffered racial discrimination. In the past Chelsea away game, Chelsea fans watched Son Heung-min and made a ‘eye tear’ gesture. In the recent Tottenham-Liverpool match, ‘Sky Sports’ commentator Martin Tyler made fun of Son Heung-min’s foul scene, saying, “He showed martial arts.”
