'What the hell', 'joke': Some Spurs fans slam 'shocking' club decision amid Son injury

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to bemoan Fernardo Llorente’s departure from North London in wake of Spurs’ injury update on Son Heung-min.

On Tuesday, Tottenham confirmed that the South Korea international is to undergo surgery this week after sustaining a fracture to his right arm during the victory over Aston Villa.

Son scored twice against the relegation battlers but is now set for the sidelines, with the Tottenham website estimating “a number of weeks” out.

However, Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho doubts whether the 27-year-old will be back this season, as reported by BBC Sport.

With Tottenham also missing Harry Kane through injury, the team is now severely hampered in attack – Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn and Troy Parrott are now the only fit forwards.

In the summer, Spurs allowed Fernando Llorente – who proved a superb deputy when Kane was out – to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on a free transfer.

With Tottenham now in the midst of a crisis up front, some fans are once again wondering why the club allowed Llorente to leave in the summer.

Here is some of the social media reaction:
