A football fan was pictured taking off his Son Heung-min Tottenham shirt to reveal Frank Lampard’s Chelsea jersey at yesterday’s game.
The two teams clashed in the Premier League and Willian’s double ensured the Blues left north London with all three points.
It seems one fan was desperate to end up on the winning side regardless of the result last night, as he came prepared with two different shirts.
Check out some pictures of him changing jerseys below:
Absolutely shameless. Would he have revealed that Lampard shirt if Spurs won the game and leapfrogged Chelsea into third place?
- Mourinho’s post-match comments show he’s back
- Fans vote for the most iconic PL players of the decade
- Gary Neville’s passionate speech on fighting racism
Probably not. Although, Son’s performance may well have helped the fan make up his mind.
The Spurs forward was sent off for clashing with Antonio Rudiger. The Chelsea defender did appear to foul Son first, but he responded by kicking out at his opponent.
VAR intervened and judged that Son’s behaviour as violent conduct, giving him his marching orders.
Sadly, the game was also overshadowed by more controversy, with Rudiger subject to racist abuse after the incident with Son.
He was seen reacting to the crowd by pointing to his ears and suggesting that some in attendance were making monkey noises and gestures at him.
Spurs opened an investigation post-match and released the following statement:
“We are now conducting a thorough investigation which will include liaising with Chelsea and their players for their observations.
“Any form of racism is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our stadium.
“We take any such allegations extremely seriously and shall take the strongest possible action against any individual found to be behaving in such a way, including stadium bans.”
Thankfully, it seems Spurs are taking swift action against those accused of abuse and that, once again, sends a message that racism will not be tolerated in football or anywhere else.
