Tottenham investigate Son Heung-min racism allegations | Football News

Tottenham are investigating allegations that Son Heung-min was racially abused during Spurs’ defeat to Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday.

Spurs supporter and journalist James Dickens claims the abuse was directed at Son by a spectator. He says that, when he confronted the fan, he was sworn at.

Dickens confirmed he is working with the club to identify the culprit, tweeting: “I’ve not experienced racism at football for about 15 years. But today at @SpursOfficial was hideous. Reported to stewards, confronted him myself.

“Spurs are looking into this now, and have been great.”

Tottenham found themselves in hot water last month after a fan threw a banana skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is of mixed race.

The fan in question was fined and handed a four-year football banning order.
