It’s tough right now.”It is just about making sure that he realises he didn’t go out there to hurt anyone, he thinks that people may see that in him, but it is not the case.“It’s one of those things. There were probably three more tackles that were worse than the incident that happened. It’s a freak moment in football. Son can’t let himself be too down about it.“As a group we have to pull together now. That’s what we said on the pitch, pulling together when times are tough.”He added: “It shakes you up, it really does. It doesn’t matter if it is your team-mate or not. You can see the emotion across the pitch.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticSon breaks down in tears as Gomes screams in agony from broken ankleProof Martin Atkinson changed his mind on Son red card after horror Gomes injuryPrem release statement on why Son was sent off after Gomes leg horrorEverton stars including Coleman went into Spurs dressing room to comfort SonSon ‘in Spurs changing room in tears refusing to lift head’ after Gomes woeTosun recalls harrowing moment Andre Gomes lay crying in shock with his eyes wide open after Son tackle “Nobody goes on the pitch to hurt anyone, especially not somebody like Son, who is a bit broken to deal with what has happened.“The team just have to sometimes say these things happen in football and, as horrible as it is, they do.
