- Eric Dier went haywire in their FA Cup game against Norwich
- The Tottenham star dashed into the stands to confront an irate fan
- Police have concluded their investigation into the incident saying the player committed no crime
Tottenham’s Eric Dier will now heave a sigh of relief after escaping criminal charges for his action in their FA Cup exit against Norwich where he jumped into the stands to confront a fan, SunSport reports.
Dier scaled the advertising hoardings and dashed to face the fan in particular before being held back by stewards and some other fans.
The highly entertaining fixture had ended 1-1 after extra time before Norwich stole the show after winning 3-2 via penalty shootout.
26-year-old Dier had sighted his brother in fisticuffs with an irate fan before he hopped through all form all barriers to confront the individual.
However, a month after the incident, police concluded their investigation into the brawl and said the player has not committed an offence.
Met police said they have reviewed the footage and have concluded that the Tottenham star did not commit any criminal act, saying there is no case.
The Met said: “The investigation concluded with no further action.”
Recall that Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho frowned at Dier's behaviour in that game. The England midfielder was caught on camera running after a Spurs fan in the stands who allegedly insulted him after the penalty loss.
A video clip revealed the incident but it was not clear what Dier's intent was, not until Mourinho explained in a post-match interview why his player was emotional saying he was hurt when his family name was mentioned.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly joined the chase for the signature of Inter Milan star Diego Godin.
The 34-year-old joined the Italian League giants in July 2019 on a free transfer after his contract with the Spanish club expired at the end of last season.
According to SunSport, Mourinho made attempts to sign Godin while at United but failed to reach an agreement with the player.
The Portuguese-born tactician is now ready to make another move for the veteran defender who is also wanted by the Red Devils.
