Son seen for first time since Andre Gomes injury as he travels with Spurs squad for Red Star Belgrade clash – The Sun

SON HEUNG-MIN was spotted for the first time since breaking down in tears following the tackle that led to Andre Gomes' horror injury.

The Spurs attacker, 27, was sent off on Sunday afternoon when he fouled the Everton midfielder, who got his studs stuck in the turf and suffered a dislocation and fracture to his right ankle.

Tottenham have appealed the red card shown by Martin Atkinson and hope the decision will be overturned.

Before then, though, Spurs have a crunch clash with Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are second in their group with a win, a draw and a defeat from their three games.

But they face the daunting task of an away game in Belgrade tomorrow night at the notoriously-difficult Rajko Mitic Stadium.

And Son was filmed boarding the plane in his tracksuit and a cap as the squad head to Serbia.

Less than 48 hours previously, the South Korean was visibly distraught after his challenge on Gomes.

Gomes was rushed to hospital for surgery and his team-mate Cenk Tosun revealed the pain Gomes was in, saying: "I could hear him screaming. His eyes were open so big. I just tried to hold him."

Son, though, was emotionally troubled and will be offered counselling by his club.

He left the field in tears and had to be consoled by boss Mauricio Pochettino.

And it is claimed that once Son got back to the changing room, he just wanted to be left alone and turned his phone off.

Seamus Coleman visited the Spurs man to reassure the South Korean the injury was not his fault.

But Son could not bring himself to speak to any journalists afterwards.

And upon arriving back at Stansted on Sunday evening, he is understood to have gone straight to the home he shares with his parents.
