Son Heung-min, the South Korean striker, and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had a clash in welcoming Everton in the 33rd round of the Premier League, which took place early on July 7.
The incident occurs after the first half is closed. While Son Heung-min was walking towards the tunnel, Hugo Lloris ran after him and kept shouting at the Korean team. Son also turned around and expressed his attitude. Without the intervention of Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, Tottenham’s duo of pillars are likely to take place.
Son showed his attitude after being criticized by the captain
The situation took place right before the eyes of coach Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese military man kept his cool face before entering the tunnel. Some sources claim that Lloris was angry at Son because the Korean star didn’t follow the captain’s instructions in the first half.
Son Heung-min after the scuffle still played in the second half. However, the Korean player was coached by Mourinho to withdraw early enough to make room for young talent Steven Bergwijn.
This season, Tottenham played unsuccessfully, but constantly attracted attention with scandals related to the players. Previously, Eric Dier made the media stir up the action to climb the stands, beating the fans for criticism after losing to Norwich in the FA Cup in March.
Coach Mourinho had to come out to explain and protect the student. However, the two incidents mentioned above made Totteham increasingly lose points in the eyes of fans.
