Two Burnley fans are arrested for making Nazi salutes towards Tottenham supporters during Spurs’ 1-0 Premier League win, with both clubs supporting police in their investigation

Two Burnley fans have been arrested for discriminatory gestures after being captured on video making a Nazi salute towards Tottenham supporters during their match on Sunday. 

In footage shared to social media, one supporter was seen making the discriminatory gesture towards the Spurs supporters at the Tottenham Stadium, while another next to him mimicked sobbing. 

Stewards removed the fans from the stadium after Tottenham supporters made complaints. 

The Metropolitan Police have since confirmed that two men have been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence. 

Met Police said via The Metro: ‘During the Tottenham v Burnley match on Sunday, 15 May, officers were alerted to two men who had been ejected from the Burnley section of the stadium.

‘Both men were subsequently arrested by Met officers on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence. They have been taken into custody.’

Tottenham won the Premier League fixture to move into fourth in the race with London rivals Arsenal for top four as Harry Kane netted from the spot to secure a 1-0 win in the tight contest. 

Antonio Conte’s side will have an anxious wait until Monday evening when the Gunners could overtake them with a victory over Newcastle United.
