Romero-Emerson clash brings back memories of four years ago

When Tottenham players clashed, the argument between Son Heung-min and Hugo Lloris four years ago was summoned again.

Tottenham was completely defeated by Liverpool 2-4 in the 36th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League EPL at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 6th.

Tottenham 60 points, which has lost four consecutive games, has effectively moved further away from the competition for fourth place, which will qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. It failed to close the gap with Aston Villa 67 points, which lost 0-1 to Brighton earlier.

Tottenham’s defense seemed to be in a rush due to Liverpool’s attack. After losing two more goals in the second half, Hishalisson and Son Heung-min scored back-to-back goals to make up for two points.

The bad atmosphere of Tottenham’s squad was revealed at half-time. It was time for the team to head to the tunnel after finishing the first half with a 0-2 deficit. The scene of the collision between Christian Romero and full-back Emerson Royal, who played as center back, was captured on the local broadcast screen.

As soon as the whistle blew, the two approached each other and faced each other. And they talked about something in an angry expression. It was obvious that they were expressing their dissatisfaction to each other.

Goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, who sensed a serious situation from behind, quickly approached and grabbed Romero’s arm and pulled it off. Without Vicario, a more violent atmosphere could have been created.

“The angry Tottenham stars had to be physically separated due to Vicario’s forced intervention,” the British Sun said. “Other Tottenham players watched this with concern,” adding, “It reminded me of the infamous fight between Son Heung-min and Hugo Lloris LAFC in 2020.

The media outlet said, “The emotions grew between Romero and Emerson as they left the stadium to take a break. When they made a mistake in the back, the two defenders started yelling at each other. As Mickey van der Ben looked worried, the two players started to yell at each other.”

Son Heung-min and goalkeeper Lloris clashed badly during an EPL match against Everton in the 2019-2020 season in July 2020. 토토사이트 That also happened after the end of the first half. Lloris harshly criticized Son for not participating in defense, and Son also resisted, saying he did not show respect.

The collision between Son Heung-min and Lloris was vividly conveyed through Amazon Prime Video, an OTT service in the U.S. The two shouted at each other and complained even when they entered the locker room. In the end, Jose Mourinho, the then head coach, had to mediate.

The difference between Tottenham at the time and Tottenham on the day was the result. Four years ago, Tottenham won 1-0 with a late goal. And Son and Lloris ended in a warm embrace after the match, showing they had no grudge against each other.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane, who played as a Sky Sports commentator on the clash between Romero and Emerson, pointed out, “It doesn’t matter, but they will have to strengthen their defense.”

“They’re paying attention,” Tottenham manager Angie Postecoglou said after the match. “I don’t want to think about them jumping into the tunnel holding hands. They’re worried and that’s a good thing,” he said.
