AFTV Criticised For Celebrating Son Heung-Min Injury In North London Derby

AFTV have been criticised after they celebrated the injury to Son Heung-min during their broadcast of Sunday's north London derby.

Son started the game against Arsenal, and was always going to be integral to Tottenham's counter attacking tactics against their local rivals.

The hosts started on the front foot and Emile Smith Rowe was unlucky to only hit the post in the 16th minute, with Hugo Lloris well beaten.

Just a minute later the ball was played through for Son and the forward chased the ball but pulled up with what looked like a hamstring injury.

The South Korean sat on the pitch and was seen to by one of Spurs' physios but had to come off for Erik Lamela, to the disgusting delight of four members of AFTV's live reaction video, with Ty and Robbie refraining from celebrations.

It's not the first time that the infamous YouTube channel have involved in controversy with the Spurs forward, with another member of their team sacked for a racist remark during a previous derby

Claude Callegari referred to the former Bayer Leverkusen player as 'DVD,' as Son was substituted off. Initially they tried to claim that it was a reference to Spurs selling DVDs of their minor achievements.

It was clear however that it was meant as a racist slur about Asians and Claude was soon sacked.

The AFTV crew would have been damning their karma just after the half hour mark when Lamela, who was only playing because of the injury, scored the opening goal of the game, with a brilliant Rabona.

They have the last laugh though as the former Roma player managed to get himself sent off in the second half, after picking up a second yellow for attempting to push Kieran Tierney away.

Hopefully Son isn't out of action for too long and that AFTV one day learn their lessons and stop cheering injuries!
