Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min getting his red card against Everton overturned.
Son, who can operate as a winger or a forward, was sent off during the Premier League game between Everton and Tottenham on Sunday.
The South Korea international was shown a straight red card in the 79th minute for his late challenge on Andre Gomes which saw the Portugal midfielder taken off on a stretcher.
Referee Martin Atkinson initially showed the 27-year-old a yellow card before he changed it to red.
Tottenham appealed against the decision, and it has been overturned by the Football Association.
Spurs legend Lineker has given his take on the decision, and he seems pleased with it.
Son wins his appeal against the red card he received on Sunday. Right decision and a kick up the backside for VAR.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) November 5, 2019
Boost for Tottenham Hotspur
Son is one of the best and most important players in the current Tottenham team, and him having his red card rescinded is certainly a boost for the North London outfit.
According to WhoScored, the South Korea international has scored two goals and provided three assists in nine Premier League appearances for Spurs so far this season.
