Son Heung-min Hugo Lloris Spurs

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho says Son Heung-min and Hugo Lloris were “hugging each other” in the dressing room at half-time after their bust-up in the 1-0 win over Everton.

Tottenham captain Lloris and the South Korean were involved in a heated exchange on the way to the tunnel, which involved pushing and shoving, and had to be separated by their Spurs team-mates.

France goalkeeper Lloris appeared angry at Son’s perceived lack of effort, but they soon made up and were hugging on the pitch at the end of the game, celebrating three points that came courtesy of Michael Keane’s first-half own-goal.

“In this moment I’m the last one to arrive to the dressing room because I come from the other side, because you know that our dressing rooms are now on the other side to the bench,” Mourinho said.

“So when I was arriving I just saw the back of it. I was not in there. When I arrived in dressing room everything was over and they were hugging each other.

“What happened was the last minute of the first half a Richarlison shot was diagonal from right side, Hugo thought that in that minute of the game the attacking players should do a little bit more and he was arguing with Sonny and Sonny with him.

“When I arrived at half-time I just wanted the players to understand that I was very happy with that. Very happy with that. When I told them that I think they realised that nothing wrong and let’s move on.”
