Tyler, who was broadcasting the match, caused controversy over racial discrimination by mentioning that he used ‘martial arts’ for Son Heung-min’s foul. He was accused of racism because he expressed that he did not play soccer but used martial arts such as taekwondo, kung fu, and karate, which are oriental martial arts.
After hearing this commentary, fans lashed out at Tyler on social media. He criticized Tyler, who is 77 years old this year, saying, “I have to retire now.”
Fans also criticized Tyler, saying, “Tyler should apologize to Son Heung-min,” “Sky Sports should immediately investigate racist remarks,” and “I was outraged by his remarks.”
Tyler has been a commentator for Sky Sports since 1990. Tyler, who has been active as a commentator since the 1970s, was named the best commentator in the Premier League by the FA in 2003.
However, last year, Tyler also brought criticism from fans by swearing “soldier on” to Ukrainian goalkeeper Georgy Buschan, who participated in an A-match.
