Eric Dier runs into stands and starts fighting with Tottenham supporter

Eric Dier runs into stands and starts fighting with Tottenham supporter, as can be seen in footage uploaded to Twitter on Wednesday.

Numerous videos circulated on social media showing Dier clamber into the stands after Jose Mourinho’s side were beaten at home on penalties to Norwich.

Tensions spilled over at the end of the game as the Premier League player had to be held back as he argued and fought with his own supporters.

It’s not clear what sparked the confrontation or what exactly took place, although there are allegations that a confrontation took place between Dier and fans in the stand.

In one video, a close up shot of Dier shows the England star screaming: “He’s my brother.”

It is not yet clear what that is in reference to.

Other images showed Dier being held back by stewards before being taken away from the area.

Following the match, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said Dier’s angry response was because a supporter had insulted his brother.

The Portuguese said: “I don’t think that belongs to the game.

“The game was a fantastic representation of the FA Cup, but I cannot run away from the question.

“I think Eric Dier did what we as professionals cannot do but when someone insults you and your family is involved, especially your young brother.”

He added: “This person insulted Eric, the younger brother was not happy with the situation and Eric was not happy. We as professionals cannot do what he did.”
