Tottenham fans made monkey noises at a Chelsea defender moments after one of its players was given a red card for kicking him

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was subjected to monkey chants from Tottenham Hotspur fans just moments after Son Heung-min was sent off for kicking him in the stomach.

Min saw red in the 62nd minute after lashing out at Rudiger following a collision, appearing to push his studs into the stomach of the German from the floor.

Just moments after, Rudiger was pictured making a monkey gesture to referee Anthony Taylor, indicating that he had heard racist noises being made at him from the crowd.

The incident was officially reported to Taylor by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpiliceuta, after which three stadium announcements were made, warning fans that racist behaviour was interfering with the match. 

Tottenham has since confirmed an official investigation has been opened, and that the perpetrators will be hit with the “strongest possible action.”

After the final whistle, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville condemned the behaviour, but said the problem runs much deeper than football, pointing fingers at the British government.

“I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we have just had an election in this country where both main parties and the leaders of both main parties are accused constantly over the last month of fuelling racism and accepting racism within their parties,” the former Manchester United and England defender said, according to The Independent.

“If it is accepted within the highest office in the country, we are not talking about it at a micro level, we are talking about an absolutely enormous level.

“Maybe we have to empower the players to walk off the pitch and stop the entertainment while it is happening. That is the only way I can see it happening.”

Rudiger himself also reflected on the incident, posting a series of tweets.

“It is really sad to see racism again at a football match, but I think it’s very important to talk about it in public. If not, it will be forgotten again in a couple of days (as always),” he said.

“I don’t want to involve Tottenham as an entire club into this situation as I know that just a couple of idiots were the offenders. I got a lot of supportive messages on social media from Spurs fans as well in the last hours — thank you a lot for this.

“I really hope that the offenders will be found and punished soon, and in such a modern football ground like the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with dozens of TV and security cameras, it must be possible to find and subsequently punish them.

“If not, then there must have been witnesses in the stadium who saw and heard the incident. It’s just such a shame that racism still exists in 2019. When will this nonsense stop?”

Chelsea won the game 2-0 courtesy of a brace from Willian, with the win seeing Frank Lampard’s side move six points ahead of Tottenham in the Premier League, and remain in fourth position.
