News reports have reliably comfirmed that Heung-min Son was the target of xenophobe abuse on social media platforms after Manchester United defeated Tottenham by 3-1 scoreline on Sunday,with Spurs criticising the “abhorrent” abuse.
It is understood that Son was involved in a development which caused Edinson Cavani's goal to be ruled out in the 1st half for the rival team.It was reported that Scott McTominay was marked down for fouling Son in the build-up.
The South Korea forward was later attacked with abhorrent abuse both in responses to a tweet from Spurs’ official account and in the contributions section on his recent Instagram post.
A statement from the north London club announced the discomforting comments against one of its players
The club indicated in the official statements that the issue would be critically investigated and appropriate actions would be fully taken.
Son reportedly became the latest abhorrent casualty in unrelenttless series of online xenophobe abuse.
Raheem Sterling had earlier experienced serious hateful messages after Manchester City lost by 2-1 to Leeds on Saturday.
Another Son’s team member identified as Davinson Sanchez was reportedly knocked down with similar comments on the internet social media platforms.
It should be noted that Jose Mourinho,the Spurs boss, had earlier suggested this week that the club would be considering a boycott of social media to protest against the issue..
