Tottenham respond to fan assault on Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale

Tottenham Hotspur have, late on Sunday, released a statement in response to the unsavoury scenes which followed the club’s defeat to Arsenal earlier in the day.

The subject of the post-match chaos which followed the latest edition of the North London Derby has of course taken centre stage in the headlines this evening.

This comes after one member of the home crowd at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, to put it lightly, allowed his frustrations to get the better of him.

After Aaron Ramsdale was at the heart of a post-match scuffle sparked by altogether unnecessary behaviour on the part of Richarlison, one Spurs fan emerged from the stands, to direct a kick into the back of Arsenal’s no.1:

The individual in question, in turn, has since been widely condemned by fans, officials, and players alike.

The onus, as a result, was very much on Tottenham to act in a timely manner, to make clear that such behaviour will not be tolerated moving forward.

And now, as alluded to above, this is precisely what the Lilywhites have done.

In an official statement posted across the club’s social media platforms a short time ago, Tottenham confirmed that an investigation has been opened to identify the supporter involved, who, once found, will be slapped with an ‘immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’:

‘We are appalled by the behaviour of a supporter that attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match. Violence in any form has no place in football.

‘The Club has reviewed its CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will be working with the Met Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.’
