Tottenham's Dier climbs into crowd to confront fan

"I can not run away from the question and I think Eric Dier did something that we professionals can not but, in these circumstances, something that every one of us would do".

Oh no, he's not become a world class footballer (that's never going to happen), he's jumped into the stands and had an altercation with a Tottenham Hotspur fan.

Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the fifth round of the F.A Cup last night, losing 3-2 on penalties to Norwich City after both sides played out a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes.

It's unclear if Dier will be punished for the act. but Mourinhio said, "If the club does that, I will not agree".

Dier's brother was invited into the dressing room following the clash and the club are working to identify the fan - who ran off - that was singled out for abuse by Dier.

"The fan was screaming abuse at Eric after the end of the shoot-out", a friend of Dier's told The Daily Telegraph.

"I think Eric Dier did something that we as professionals can not do but in these circumstances I think every one of us would do", he told reporters.

"This person insulted Eric, his family was there".

Further explaining the situation, the Portuguese manager added: "This person insulted Eric, the younger brother was not happy with the situation and Eric was not happy".

'The supporters that are in this privileged position, in this area of the tunnel, of course some are Tottenham fans but also a lot of corporate [fans], invitations and people with special status.

Dier scored his penalty in the shootout, but Erik Lamela, Troy Parrott, and Gedson Fernandes missed from the spot to condemn Spurs to a fourth straight defeat in all competitions. "I think he's started 11-12 games in a row, we had many many players in trouble".
