‘It’s a shame… it leaves a sour taste’ – Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale slams Tottenham yob who KICKED him after derby


AARON RAMSDALE spoke out after being disgracefully KICKED by a Tottenham fan following the climax of the North London derby.

Ramsdale phenomenally kept a clean sheet away from home to help the league leaders to a 2-0 win.

But tempers flared after the match with opposing players colliding following the final whistle.

And it riled up the home Spurs supporters inside the stadium, with one even punting Ramsdale as he went to collect his water bottle.

He responded to Sky Sports: “The Spurs fans were giving me some stick in the second half and I gave them some back.

“To the few I did do it to it was probably well-greeted sportsmanship like but then a fan jumped over and gave me a little punch in the back.

“That’s what happened and it is a shame because it’s just a game of football at the end of the day.

“Both sets of players tried to bring me away, thankfully nothing happened too drastic.

“It is a sour taste but I am sure we will enjoy it when we go back to the dressing room.”

Spurs’ Eric Dier fumed: “I didn’t see it, but it is just unacceptable really.


“There is nothing more than I can say other than it’s unacceptable and it shouldn’t have happened.”

A PFA spokesperson said: “Violence towards players is completely unacceptable.

“These types of incidents are happening far too often. Players have a right to be safe in their place of work.

“When a player is attacked, we expect the laws and regulations that are in place to protect players to be properly enforced. As the players’ union, we treat this as a priority issue.

“We will continue working with the authorities to demand that players and staff are better protected in their place of work.”

An own goal from Hugo Lloris and Martin Odegaard meant bragging rights go back to the Emirates.

And Mikel Arteta’s side pulled further away from Premier League champions Manchester City.

Arsenal went eight points clear from Pep Guardiola’s City in their bid for a first league title in almost 20 years.
