Tottenham Hotspur has initiated an inquiry following racist abuse towards Son Heung-min during the Premier League game against Crystal Palace

Son, who is the captain of the South Korean national team, was being substituted for Arnaut Danjuma and had to walk around the edge of the pitch, passing by the Palace fans’ section.

It was during this time that the alleged racial abuse occurred.

Tottenham Hotspur Statement

We are aware of an allegation of racial abuse towards Heung-Min Son during yesterday’s match,” a Tottenham statement read.

Discrimination of any kind is abhorrent and has no place in society, our game and at our club.

We are working with Met Police and Crystal Palace to investigate and identify the individual involved.

We will do everything in our powers to ensure that if found guilty, the individual will receive the strongest possible action – as was the case earlier this season when Son suffered similar racial abuse at Chelsea.

Son Heung-min has unfortunately been subjected to racial abuse in the past. During a match between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in August, Son was also targeted.

A season-ticket holder from Chelsea was banned indefinitely after a video surfaced on social media of a supporter in the home section making a racist gesture towards Son during the 2-2 draw.

In March, the Crown Prosecution Service issued an order prohibiting the Chelsea fan from attending live football games for three years.
