Sunday’s North London derby ended in a 2-0 home defeat for Tottenham against Arsenal. a victory largely deserved by the Gunners in view of their performance. However, Spurs took this setback against their rivals badly. As Richarlison argued with Aaron Ramsdale, who was playing time, a supporter emerged from the stands and kicked the England goalkeeper before the stewards intervened.
An incident that Tottenham strongly condemned with a press release published on its official website after the meeting. “We are appalled by the behavior of a supporter who attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match. Violence in all its forms has no place in football. The club have reviewed their CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will work with the Metropolitan Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium .
“It’s a shame, because at the end of the day it’s just a football game. Both teams tried to take me away, luckily nothing too drastic happened , ”said the main concerned after this North London derby. Note that the Players Association in England (PFA) took up this case, alarming about the seriousness of these facts.“Violence towards players is completely unacceptable. These types of incidents happen far too often. Players have the right to be safe in their workplace. When a player is attacked, we expect the laws and regulations in place to protect them to be properly enforced. As a players’ union, we consider this issue to be a priority. We will continue to work with the authorities to demand that players and staff are better protected in their workplace. »
