Today I’m embarassed to be a Spurs fan – Some fans react to racist NLD incident

Tottenham and Arsenal battled it out in a NLD that will go down in history this weekend.

Aubameyang gave the Gunners the lead after Vertonghen handled in the box early on.

Spurs then scored two in as many minutes to take the lead through an Eric Dier header and penalty of their own scored by Harry Kane.

However, it wasn’t to be for Spurs fans, as Arsenal ran rampant in the second half against some weary Spurs legs.

They ended up winning the tie 4-2 and denying Tottenham a perfect week of three wins out of three.

However, it isn’t the score line or the amazing derby taking the headlines today, but an embarrassing act of racism from one Tottenham fan.

I use the term ‘fan’ loosely, because if this was in fact a racist act by throwing a banana towards goal scorer Aubameyang, then this is no fan of the club.

The person responsible has embarrassed the team, staff, and fans, earned themselves a lifetime ban, and Tottenham an FA inquiry.

Here are some reactions to the incident on Twitter.
