Eric Dier climbs into stands and confronts fan after Tottenham’s FA Cup defeat
Eric Dier has been involved in a physical confrontation with a Tottenham supporter, who apparently had a disagreement with his brother. The England midfielder scored a penalty in the shootout against Norwich, but Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup after the final spot-kick from Gedson Fernandes was saved by Tim Krul.
Dier, whose brother was in the stand and “not happy” with the situation, was eventually held back by stewards.
Mourinho said: “I think Eric did what we professionals cannot do but probably every one of us would do.”
The Football Association and Tottenham are investigating the incident.
