Heung-min Son appeared to apologise to Andre Gomes after scoring vs Red Star

Son appeared to apologise to Gomes

It's been a tough, tough week for Heung-min Son.

The Tottenham forward was left in tears on the pitch after his tackle seriously injured Everton's Andre Gomes on Sunday.

Son was shown a straight red card for his actions, but that has now been rescinded by the English footballing authorities.

Dele Alli and Mauricio Pochettino confirmed after the game that Son was inconsolable in the dressing room, but the Spurs manager opted to start him tonight against Red Star Belgrade.

The Korean scored twice in the Serbian capital and after the first of his brace, the forward took time to send an apology to Gomes on camera.

A classy touch from Son and the Spurs players rallied around him before the game as well.

Journalist Dan Kilpatrick tweeted that the team was led out by the Korean for the pre-match warmup in a show of support.

A nice touch from the team during arguably the toughest few days in Son's career.

The Korean's brace helped Spurs to a much-needed three points against Red Star, with Christian Eriksen and Giovani Lo Celso grabbing the other goals to seal a dominant 4-0 victory.

They're now in a great position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League once again after making the final last season.

Pochettino's side still have to travel to Germany to face Bayern Munich, but they will fancy their chances against Olympiakos at home on the final match day.
