There is no place to run away from racists who have no sense of common sense.
Tottenham Hotspur won 1-0 in a match against Crystal Palace in the 35th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022/23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Herringay, Greater London, Greater London, England on the 6th (Korean time) . Tottenham won after 5 league games, and Palace failed to win 2 league games in a row.
Son Heung-min played a big role again in this game. Tottenham used a 4-4-2 formation instead of the usual 3-4-3 formation against Palace. Son Heung-min took on the role of having to pay attention to both offense and defense as a left winger, not an offensive role. However, he handled it well and contributed to the team’s victory.
However, on this day, Son Heung-min had to suffer bad things despite his great performance. It was racist behavior towards him by what appeared to be some of the Palace away fans. It was an eye-rolling act of ridiculing players from the East.
Son Heung-min must have heard emotional agitation, but he did not respond emotionally. After finding his composure and keeping an eye on his position, he seemed to be talking to an official after the game.
In response to Son Heung-min, the process for handling racial discrimination was carried out. At around 6:00 pm, Tottenham said on its official website, “Our club has identified acts of racism towards Son Heung-min. This is unacceptable and our club will do everything possible.” 메이저놀이터
Racism in and of itself is absurd. In addition to this, it is also irrational to think that such an act would not be detected even on a soccer field. In recent years soccer field seating has made progress in spectator perception. In particular, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the home stadium of Tottenham, is a new stadium and all seats are being filmed. In other words, there is no place to escape to those who have committed misconduct, including racial discrimination.
Alesdair Gold of ‘Football London’, a Tottenham correspondent, wrote on his social media the same day, “I don’t know how this happens today.” That’s what it says. I don’t know how this still happens today. But what is clear is that there is no paradise to escape to those who have committed such racist acts at the same time.
