Son shouldn’t have seen red for Gomes tackle and VAR ought to have been used

first_imgSon breaks down in tears as Gomes screams in agony from broken ankleProof Martin Atkinson changed his mind on Son red card after horror Gomes injuryPrem release statement on why Son was sent off after Gomes leg horrorEverton confirm surgery for Gomes on Monday after breaking right ankleEverton stars including Coleman went into Spurs dressing room to comfort SonSon ‘in Spurs changing room in tears refusing to lift head’ after Gomes woeTosun recalls harrowing moment Andre Gomes lay crying in shock with his eyes wide open after Son tackle Son’s foul did not endanger the player’s safety and it was so unfortunate Everton midfielder Gomes’ studs caught in the turf before his sickening collision with Serge Aurier.Initially, Atkinson had a yellow in his hand but having seen the reaction on the players’ faces and the crowd, he gave himself more thinking time by putting it back in his pocket.With emotions running high, Atkinson then issued a red card on the basis of his human response.He should not receive any criticism because any referee in that horrible position would have done the same.We do not know if VAR official Anthony Taylor got involved but the cold technology could have helped Atkinson.Son has been red carded for the unfortunate consequences of what happened next, not for the foul itself.So I have to ask the question, since when did the laws of the game say the outcome of a foul dictates the appropriate disciplinary action? It’s not in the laws of the game. most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’STIR IT UPBohemians post cryptic response to FIFA promoting a jersey with Bob Marley on itIt’s a wrongful dismissal for Son and if VAR had got involved, I believe the South Korean would not have been sent off.Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says the club will appeal and I believe they will have every chance of the decision being overturned.A Premier League statement last night tried to protect the referee and justify the decision.
