An Everton fan has been spotted live on TV making a racist gesture towards Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son.
The Sky Sports cameras panned to the supporters instead of showing the horror injury Andre Gomes suffered, which lead to Son getting sent off.
As a huge amount of fans and pundits have said on social media, Son’s challenge wasn’t a red card tackle, but referee Martin Atkinson was quick to pull out a yellow card, before producing a red after seeing how horrific the injury was, with players turning around, not knowing where to look and with their hands on their heads.
The club responded with a statement reading: “Everton is investigating an alleged incident of racist behaviour by a supporter attending today’s fixture against Tottenham.
“Everton strongly condemns any form of racism. Any such behaviour has no place within our stadium, our club, our community or our game.”
Everton have since confirmed he has suffered a fracture dislocation to his right ankle and will undergo surgery on Monday.
After watching a video of the racist Everton fan, supporters on Twitter expressed their anger with a huge amount wanting him banned for life – see those tweets by clicking on the next page.
