Assistant coach Christian Stellini, who serves as acting manager of Tottenham, said that Lucas Moura (Tottenham)’s exit was justified.
Tottenham played Everton at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England at 4 am on the 4th (Korean time) in the 29th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) and drew 1-1.
Tottenham, with 50 points, was in 4th place. Everton (27 points) rose to 15th place.
One player from each team was sent off after receiving a red card. Doucure at Everton, Moura at Tottenham.
On this day, Kane led the Tottenham attack with Son Heung-min. However, he was struck in the face in the early and mid-half of the second half and fell to the ground once.
In the 12th minute of the second half, Doucoure was ordered to leave for a foul over the line first. Doucure struck Kane in the face right in front of both managers watching and was ordered to leave directly from the referee. Doucure, who had previously watched Kane compete for the ball with Everton’s Gray, had an argument with him and then punched him in the face.
Doucoure protested to the referee who gave him a red card, but the decision was not overturned. Kane also received a yellow card for pushing Gray in the back during a contest.
Tottenham scored a goal with a numerical advantage. In the 23rd minute of the second half, Kane took the penalty kick that Romero won and shook Everton’s net.
One player was also sent off at Tottenham. It is Moura, who was put into the game as a substitute for Son Heung-min in the 37th minute of the second half. In the 42nd minute of the second half, Moura stepped on the ankle of Everton Keane, who was in possession of the ball, and was sent off immediately. Moura covered his face as if recognizing that his foul was serious and left the arena.
Moura’s exit was painful for Tottenham. In the 45th minute of the second half, Everton Keane allowed a mid-range equalizer.
After the match, acting coach Stellini said of Moura’s sending off, “Moura stepped on a player’s ankle while trying to catch the ball. It’s dangerous. It’s a definite red card.”
He added: “Moura is (himself) disappointed. That type of tackle is very dangerous.”
In addition, Acting Stellini said, “The only problem for Tottenham that day was that they should have controlled the game better when it was 1-0 after having an 11-10 numerical advantage. After the second sending off, the game changed rapidly.”
Still, “We did well. There were also scoring opportunities. It was unlucky not to score (more) goals.” 메이저사이트
