Tottenham Hotspur have banned a fan indefinitely from attending further games, with immediate effect, after a banana skin was thrown onto the pitch during Sunday’s English Premier League soccer match with Arsenal.
The incident happened at the Emirates after 10 minutes when the Arsenal players celebrated Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty, which put the hosts ahead after Jan Vertonghen’s handball.
The Metropolitan Police said after the match, which ended 4-2 to the hosts, that they had made seven arrests at the game for various public order offences, including one for an object thrown onto the field of play.
Following the game, a Spurs spokesman said: “Behaviour such as this is completely unacceptable and the supporter in question will be issued with a ban.”
A Tottenham Hotspur fan was initially arrested after throwing a banana skin at Aubameyang during shameful scenes at the Emirates on Sunday.
Aubameyang scored twice with Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira also hitting the target as Arsenal won an explosive north London soccer derby 4-2, with Tottenham scoring through Eric Dier and Harry Kane
But the game was marred by a mass brawl between the two teams, claims that two smoke canisters were thrown into the away end and the unpleasant incident involving Aubameyang
