"Fuck you stupid dog eating eye stretched cunt you ever dive again you silly prick"
Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has suffered racist abuse after a Manchester United goal was disallowed.
The South Korean was caught in the face by United midfielder Scott McTominay during Spurs’ 3-1 home defeat. Son fell to the ground, holding his face, as United forward Edinson Cavani went on to score the first goal of the game.
After reviewing VAR, referee Chris Kavanagh disallowed Manchester United’s goal on the basis that McTominay had fouled Son.
Son then went on to score Tottenham Hotspur’s only goal before United responded with three goals to win the game.
Reflecting on the disallowed goal, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer criticised Son. “If that was my son and he stays down and he needs his mates to help him up, he doesn’t get food because that’s embarrassing,” Solskjaer said.
“If that’s a clear and obvious error, it’s an obvious error he had to look at it. It was a perfectly good goal.”
Manchester United fans echoed the manager’s frustration but many on social media descended into racism.
“Fuck you stupid dog eating eye stretched cunt you ever dive again you silly prick,” wrote one Twitter user.
“You got any pirate dvd fellas? I’ll trade my dog for some,” tweeted another.
“Son the cheating gook,” one person wrote.
“Son the little gook, terrible decision #FuckVAR,” said another.
Others called for Son’s death.
“I hope someone kills Heung Min Son in the military so his children can cry tears of sadness,” wrote one person.
“Everytime I see this Son guy I wish for someone to step on his balls with those boots on. Just kill him already,” wrote another.
Tottenham Hotspur responded on social media, showing their support for Son in a stance against racism.
“Another matchday and more abhorrent racial abuse suffered by one of our players,” the statement read. “This has again been reported to the platforms and we shall now undertake a full review alongside the Premier League to determine the most effective action moving forward. We stand with you, Sonny.”
