Journalist Jonathan Veal has hit out after Heung-Min Son was taken out of it in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.
Tottenham seized control of Group D with a 3-2 victory at home to Eintracht Frankfurt.
A 0-0 draw last week left Antonio Conte’s side with work to do but a quickfire trio of goals, with Son scoring either side of Harry Kane, sent Spurs to top spot.
The German visitors went down to ten men in the second period as Tuta received two yellow cards in three minutes but Veal is of the impression that Makoto Hasebe should also have been given his marching orders.
Taking to Twitter he posted:
Frankfurt should be down to nine men as Hasebe wipes out Son but avoids a second yellow. #THFC

TIF Thoughts on Son and Tottenham…
This wasn’t the only error that the referee made as his original decision not to award a penalty for a foul on Harry Kane was overturned.
Despite Veal’s pleas, it was a successful night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the Lilywhites who know that if they defeat Sporting Lisbon at home in a fortnight they will all but secure a place in the last-16.
Daichi Kamada had given the Bundesliga visitors the lead but a thunderous volley from Son completed the turnaround for Spurs on the night.
Faride Alidou did put some late pressure on the hosts when he scored on 87 minutes but the north London club ultimately emerged 3-2 victors despite Kane’s penalty miss in injury time.
With European commitments now parked for two weeks, Spurs’ attention turns to three huge fixtures in the Premier League with games against Everton, Manchester United and high-flying Newcastle, which will give a huge indication of where they may finish this season.
