The English FA Would Investigate Racist Claim At Tottenham - Millwall

The Football Association is investigating allegations some fans used racist language during Tottenham's FA Cup win over Millwall. Lions manager Neil Harris said after the game he was expecting the authorities to look into chanting from the away end apparently aimed at Spurs' South Korea forward Heung-min Son.

It is understood that the FA will investigate allegations against both sets of supporters, liaising with the two clubs and the Metropolitan Police. Both Harris and Mauricio Pochettino denied hearing anything untoward during Spurs' 6-0 quarter-final win, in which Son scored a hat-trick.

Harris said “What I will say is me personally and the club we won't condone that. We came here in the right spirit, to enjoy an FA Cup quarter-final, so if that's proven to have been to the detriment to the competition then I'm sure it will be left to the authorities. We just want people to enjoy the game. Of course it's a shame, for both of us - Mauricio wants to be talking about his team's quality. The focus comes away from what we've achieved in the competition. It's wrong in society and it's wrong in football.”
