Tottenham Hotspur fans don’t want Son Heung-Min to be rushed back into first-team action after breaking down on the pitch during the club’s 1-1 draw with Everton.
The South Korea international tackled Andre Gomes in the second half and the Toffees midfielder subsequently suffered a fracture-dislocation of his ankle.
Son was sent off for his role in the injury and was visibly shaken by the incident, crying on the pitch and being comforted by players from both sides.
The Daily Mirror reports that the club are concerned about Son’s mental state as they prepare for their Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday, and he could be left out of the travelling squad as a result – Spurs will make a late check on his wellbeing before making a decision.
And fans are of the belief that this would be a solid step from the club.
The 27-year-old – who Transfermarkt value at £72m – scored twice in the 5-0 win over Red Star at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but supporters want him to be given the chance to get back to his old self as quickly as possible.
Take a look at the best of the reaction on Twitter below!
instant reaction showed how much he will suffer. need to give him a few days to settle and try to then get him back training after that. the longer he waits the harder it will be for him. really feel for him

Understandable concern given the emotion showed by Sonny immediately after the incident. Imho give him a couple of days, then get him back out there in training again with the squad. Hopefully red card rescinded & he could be in squad v @SheffieldUnited on Saturday.

If Sonny needs time, no problem. I don’t want anyone playing a CL match unless they are physically AND mentally fit to do so. We have enough depth and talent to win this match without Son, as much as I’ll miss him if he doesn’t play.

I think Son Heung-min could skip a couple of games if he wants to. We have to respect that the people who directly involved in those situations are Son himself. We are not in his shoes and never knew what’s going on in his life either.

If we try to play him now, he most likely won’t play well and it will damage his relationship with Poch. Giving him a break is the best decision.

It would be sensible to rest him on Wednesday. He will bounce back. He’s a strong guy and has no blame for what happened to Gomes
