Richarlison and Son Heung-min scrap with Sevilla players in fiery Spurs friendly

Tottenham stars Richarlison and Son scrapped with Sevilla players as the two sides’ pre-season friendly descended into a brawl on Saturday.

Spurs ace Son was launching a counter-attack when full-back Gonzalo Montiel tried to challenge the South Korean with a barge. Montiel was instead caught by a stray elbow from the 30-year-old, leaving him with a bloodied mouth.

After leaving the pitch to change his shirt, the furious Argentine confronted Son at the half-time whistle. Son shoved his opponent in response, before Spurs new boy Richarlison decided to introduce himself by also jumping into the action with his own push.

In only his second game since his £60million move from Everton earlier this month, the Brazilian caught both teammate Cristian Romero and his opponent with the shove. The 25-year-old even appeared to throw an open-palmed jab, catching a Sevilla player before things eventually cooled down.

The teams came back out after the break with the score still level at 0-0. It wasn’t long before star-man Harry Kane opened the scoring by calmly rolling the ball into the net after being played through by Son.

However, Sevilla were able to equalise courtesy of ex-Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic in the 64th minute, resulting in the match finishing 1-1.

Aside from the first-half altercation, the match was a far calmer affair than Spurs’ 6-3 win over Team K League. Wednesday’s clash saw Son and Kane both score two goals while Eric Dier and an own-goal saw Antonio Conte’s side secure the win in a thrilling contest.
