On this day, Son Heung-min received one warning in addition to help, and controversy is brewing over the situation at the time.
The controversial scene occurred in the 28th minute of the first half. Son Heung-min, who was struggling to keep the ball between the three opposing defenders, stepped out rather late and stepped on the foot of defender Kenny Tete. Although he had no intention of harming his opponent, Tete rolled over in great pain.
Afterwards, the referee gave Son Heung-min a warning, but the Fulham players strongly protested that they should give him a red card instead of a yellow card.
The controversy continued after the match. Fulham coach Marco Silva insisted that Son Heung-min did not receive a fair price, saying, “Son Heung-min should have received a stronger punishment than a warning.”
British media BBC Sports also raised the level of criticism, saying, “It is a controversial scene, but the exit was not strange. However, the referee only gave a warning after reading the video (VAR). Son Heung-min ran behind the VAR.”
Meanwhile, with the help of this day, Son Heung-min posted the 3rd help and 7th attack point (4 goals and 3 assists) in the season league. 안전놀이터
