Tottenham Lodge Appeal For Son’s Red Card Against Chelsea

Tottenham Appeal Son’s Red Card

Tottenham have lodged an appeal to overturn Son Heung-Min red card against Chelsea.

Son was sent off in the second half of the 2-0 defeat after VAR ruled that he kicked out at Antonio Rudiger.

This incident led to Rudiger claiming he was racially abused by one or more fans in the home end.

Mourinho confirmed that Spurs would appeal it, saying: “I hope Son is not punished five times.

“One time was the foul that Rudiger did on him. The second is to be sent off.

“The third would be not to play against Brighton.

“The fourth not to play against Norwich and the fifth not to play against Southampton.

“So I think to be punished twice is enough.”

The South Korea international has now been sent off three times this season, but of course, the second red he received was overturned.
