The Football Association is investigating allegations some fans used racist language during Tottenham’s FA Cup win over Millwall.
Son Heung-min was the main subject of the abuse from the neanderthal Millwall fans during our 6-0 win, with the South Korean replying to the racism in the best manner by scoring a hat-trick.
Millwall fans were heard chanting “DVD” and “You’re selling three for a fiver” at Son during the first half, thought to be in reference to the racist stereotype of traders selling bootleg copies of films.
Sky Sports report that the FA will investigate allegations against both sets of supporters, liaising with the two clubs and the Metropolitan Police.
Son is Tottenham’s leading scorer in the FA Cup this season with six goals in four appearances.
Both Mauricio Pochettino and Millwall boss Neil Harris denied hearing anything untoward during the cup tie.
But Harris said: “What I will say is me personally – and the club – we won’t condone that.
“We came here in the right spirit, to enjoy an FA Cup quarter-final, so if that’s proven to have been to the detriment to the competition then I’m sure it will be left to the authorities. We just want people to enjoy the game.
“Of course it’s a shame, for both of us – Mauricio wants to be talking about his team’s quality.
“The focus comes away from what we’ve achieved in the competition. It’s wrong in society and it’s wrong in football.”
