Eric Dier ‘confronts Tottenham Hotspur fan in stands’

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier needed to be restrained by stewards after jumping into the stands to confront a supporter after his side’s exit from the FA Cup.
Despite holding a lead heading into the closing stages against Norwich City, Spurs eventually lost out to the Canaries in a penalty shootout.

In the minutes after the match in North London, Dier appeared to react to negative comments from the stands, with a video on social media showing the England international jumping over advertising hoardings before climbing towards a group of fans.

The player was later shown being held back by two stewards, allegedly after a confrontation with a supporter who had verbally abused him.

Manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that comments were also made about Dier’s younger brother, although the Portuguese said that the 26-year-old ‘did not act professionally’.
