Son Heung-min tackle, I thought there would be more than a warning.Fulham also has strong complaints.
Fulham also expressed dissatisfaction with Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham)’s deep tackle.
Tottenham beat Fulham 1-0 in the 21st round of the 2022-2023 Premier League at Craven Cottage in London on the 23rd. Tottenham remained in fifth place with 11 wins, three draws, seven losses and 36 points.
Son Heung-min, who started as a starter, replaced Hishalisson after playing 76 minutes. Son Heung-min assisted Harry Kane’s winning goal in the extra time of the first half.
The controversial scene came out in the 28th minute of the first half. Son Heung-min raised his foot high in the process of competing with Fulham defender Kenny Tete. Son Heung-min stepped on Tete’s ankle with his soccer shoes. As a result of the video review, Son Heungmin was given a yellow card.
After the game, head coach Marco Silva Fulham complained strongly about Son Heung-min’s tackle, saying, “To be honest, I thought there would be a decision more than a yellow card.” Son Heungmin was sent off and Tottenham was right to fight with 10 players.
Silva said, “I fought well until the 40th minute of the first half, but I didn’t last five minutes. We are in the process of developing and it is not easy. It was not usual to call Tottenham home and play an overwhelming game. “If there were 9-10 players behind the ball, we had to create more chances,” he said, giving Fulham players a disappointing evaluation.
As for Kane, who scored the winning goal, Silva said, “A great soccer player made a great finish. “We were sluggish in the second half and didn’t make a chance,” he admitted.
