Tottenham condemned the ‘heinous’ racial abuse directed at Heung-min Son on social media after their 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
The South Korean forward gave Spurs a lead in the 40th minute, before goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood in the second half turned the game around on Sunday.
But Son was in the spotlight ahead of his opening when he came into contact with Scott McTominay in preparation for a Cavani goal, which was denied by referee Chris Kavanagh after a VAR exam.
Son has since become the last Premier League star to be racially abused online, Rhian Brewster, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford and others have suffered the same fate this season.
Tottenham criticized the abuse as a statement read: “Another matchday and more heinous racial abuse suffered by one of our players.
“This has been reported to the platforms again and we will now undertake a full review alongside the Premier League to determine the most effective action to move forward.
“We’re with you, Sonny.
Jose Mourinho has repeatedly hit back at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claims that Son had ‘swindled’ officials during the incident with McTominay.
The Manchester United boss said: “We shouldn’t be cheated. If my son stayed on the ground for three minutes and needed 10 companions to help him get up, he would have no food.
This led to a fiery response from Mourinho, enraged at Solskjaer’s comments.
The Tottenham manager said: “It’s very, very sad. I think it’s really sad that you don’t ask me about this. It’s sad that you don’t have an honest moral to treat me the same way you treat others.
“By the way, I just want to say that Sonny is very lucky his father is a better person than Ole. I am a father.
“I think that as a father you should always feed your children. It doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your children, you steal.
“I am very, very disappointed. As they say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese.
“I have already told Ole what I thought of his comments and I am very disappointed that in five, six, seven questions you ignore the dimensions of that comment.”
