It’s fantastic to see Andre Gomes recovering well from his horrific injury at the weekend.
The Everton midfielder was brought down by Son-Heung Min before catching his ankle in the turf, resulting in a dislocated and fractured ankle.
It left all those on the pitch pretty shaken up - especially Son.
The Spurs forward was shown a red card and was left distraught.
While his red card has since been rescinded, there were doubts whether the South Korean would be in the mental state to play in the Champions League just days after the incident.
- Son apologises to Gomes during his goal celebration
- Spurs take the lead vs Red Star with a FIFA-like goal
- Son was sent off for endangering Gomes' safety, say the PL
However, Son started during Spurs’ trip to Red Star Belgrade.
And he showed no signs of being mentally affected by Gomes’ injury as he scored twice during the 4-0 win. Son also refused to celebrate, instead putting his hands together in an apologetic gesture.
Afterwards, Son admitted that it was a sign of respect for Gomes.
"I didn't want to celebrate because I just want to respect the situation," he said. "Of course, I still feel really sorry about this situation. It's been a few tough days.
"I wish Andre Gomes gets well soon and best wishes."
A touch of class.
However, the Spurs players showed their support for Son even before the match started. They allowed him to lead the players out to warm-up instead of captain Harry Kane, who usually does it.
While refusing to celebrate might be ‘class’ act, fans think that this 'show of support' was a bit over the top.
Check out the reaction on Twitter:
After the game, Mauricio Pochettino was pleased that his side have helped Son move on and quickly forget about Sunday.
"I told you, it wasn't a big issue. It was a problem for everyone, not only for Sonny, for everyone on the pitch," Pochettino said.
"We feel very sorry about what happened to Andre, but he moved on quickly. We helped him to move on.
"It was a mix of everything, not only the injury, the red card, how we missed the three points.
"He moved on quick and we helped him to move on and today he scored twice and he helped the team win the three points which was the most important thing."News Now - Sport News
