Tottenham post “Bentancur effect” despite ‘four terrible passes

‘Koreans notice’ Spanish account only

After only four successful passes, a post called “The Ventancourt Effect” is published. It’s been criticized as the wrong post at a sensitive time.

Tottenham Hotspur posted a photo of Rodrigo Bentancur on the club’s official Spanish account on Sept. 24, with the caption “Efecto Bentancur.” The post sparked outrage among South Korean fans. The post sparked outrage among Korean fans.

The reason for this was a recent mistake by Bentancur. Bentancur appeared on the Uruguayan TV program “Por la Camiseta” on the 15th and was asked by the host to wear a South Korean jersey. He wanted the jersey of Tottenham captain Son Heung-min. Bentancur replied, “Sonny?” (Son’s nickname).

“It could be Son Heung-min’s cousin’s uniform. They all look the same,” he laughed. The host chimed in and laughed along with him. It was a clear racist comment, implying that all Asians look alike.

The controversy spiraled out of control, and Bentancur took to social media to post an apology. “Sonny my brother! I apologize for what happened. It was a really bad joke. I love you so much and I want you to know that I would never disrespect or hurt you or anyone else! I love you brother,” he wrote, bowing his head.

Tottenham were slow to respond. Bentancur apologized, but the club’s official response was slow to come. It was a different approach than in the past. A Crystal Palace fan who shouted racist remarks at Son Heung-min was banned from the stadium for three years.

The Nottingham Forest fan involved in the Son Heung-min racism incident last December was also fined and banned for three years. A Chelsea fan who made a racist gesture toward Son during a 2022 match against Tottenham was banned from the stadium indefinitely.

Tottenham released a statement on Tuesday saying, “We spoke to Bentancur and he admitted he made a mistake and apologized. He did not 토토사이트 intend to say anything offensive on purpose.” It’s a disappointing response for a club with a Korean as captain.

Regardless of Bentancru”s apology and Son”s acceptance of the apology, it was reported that the English Football Association (FA) could impose disciplinary action. “Bentancur is facing possible disciplinary action from the FA for his discriminatory remarks that Son and Koreans all look the same,” The Times reported on Nov. 21. It doesn’t matter whether Son accepted his apology or not, according to the media outlet.

After the news broke, Ventancru apologized again. Apparently realizing the seriousness of the issue, he apologized in a post instead of a Story feature. “Regarding the reference to Son Heung-min in the interview, I spoke with him and we understood, based on our deep friendship, that this was just an unfortunate misunderstanding,” he wrote.

“Everything has been clarified and resolved. If anyone was offended by my comments, I sincerely apologize. But to be clear, I was only referring to Son Heung-min and no one else, so I had no intention of insulting anyone directly or indirectly. I have great respect for all of them,” he added.

As expected, the comments section of this post became a battleground. Surprisingly, the comment that received the most likes was one that mocked Asian outrage, saying, “Bunch of cry baby’s in this world.” The next most supported comment was one that said, “Lolo you already apologized. Idk what more these lot wanted.”

Korean fans also weighed in, with one commenting, “This is ridiculous, you’ve been racist against Asians and never offended anyone else?” and another, “Now that you’re in trouble?”

Another fan wrote, “He already apologized. He apologized. move on and shut up,” while others fired back with comments like, “Does that look like an apology to you? I never got an apology,” and “What an ignorant person who thinks this article is an apology.”

While the Korean and Uruguayan fans were at loggerheads, Tottenham took to social media with a post of their own. The post, which was only visible in Spain, showed a photo of Bentancur.

Uruguay defeated Panama 3-1 in the first leg of their CONMEBOL Copa America Group C match on Thursday. Bentancur came on as a substitute in the 40th minute and played about 10 minutes of stoppage time. He attempted five passes, four of which were successful. Tottenham’s ‘uplifting’ post about the win was a testament to Bentancur’s effectiveness. They wanted to praise Bentancur under the radar of Koreans and other Asians, but in the 21st century, that doesn’t work. It was quickly exposed.
