Tottenham star, Son Heung-min overreacted with his emotional reaction to Andre Gomes’ injury, according to Stan Collymore.
Stan believes this is a huge problem for a lot of present day footballers.
Collymore revealed that even if the situation was bad, Son exaggerated his emotions after the incident just to appeal to the public.
His words, “I am not saying [Son and Aurier] shouldn’t have been upset or shown distress, because these are normal human emotions,”
“The way Son reacted made it look like he thought football – the referee, the authorities, fans at home and in the crowd, opponents – was going to come down on him like a ton of bricks, even though we could all see he didn’t deliberately go out to cause Gomes’ injury.
“For a while now, I have been bothered that players and managers seem to think they must show an extreme version of their emotions because of the comeback they will get if they do not.
“Nowadays, footballers seemingly have to go over the top to present themselves before the court of public opinion and that needs to stop.”
“His fracture will likely be an inch or two long, not too bad,”
“The bad part of the injury will be the fact the ankle ligaments have been strained and torn — they will need a lot of massaging to stop them going gluey and to ensure they grow back, which they will.
“I had a titanium plate fitted to get me back playing again and I did it in six weeks and two days, which I was very proud of.”
