There are no signs that the vandalism at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this week during the break from competition was brought on by anti-Semitism in the context of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham’s home stadium was targeted on Monday, and one person has been arrested for the building’s damage. On the £1.2 billion stadium, it is believed that these damages will total ‘at least’ six figures.
After the international break, Spurs meet Fulham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but it is unknown how long repairs will take or exactly what elements of the stadium were harmed.
Since becoming the manager of Spurs, Ange Postecoglou has created something similar to a fortress in his new residence, much as he did when he managed Celtic and Yokohama. Tottenham is now undefeated in the Premier League, both at home and away.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium hit with vandalism
‘We can confirm that an individual was detained for criminal damage following an incident that occurred on Monday night,’ said a statement from Tottenham.
No evidence exists to suggest that this occurrence is related to anti-Semitism.
I don’t understand why on earth people would do anything like this. You need to work to mend your unhealthy relationship with football if you feel forced to harm a rival club’s property.
Tottenham player receives late international call-up for World Cup qualifier
Emerson Royal of Tottenham Hotspur has been selected for the Brazil team to play Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday (Official).
The Brazilian wasn’t originally included to the team for the two international games this week, but Danilo’s injury has left the team shorthanded at right back.
Emerson Royal called up to the Brazil squad
Emerson hasn’t been a regular starter in recent weeks because of Pedro Porro’s strong play, but Ange Postecoglou has still used him off the bench.
The right-back most recently helped Spurs finish off a 1-0 victory against Luton Town despite having 10 men on the field.
Emerson was hand-picked to fill a vacancy in the team this week and will now switch Spurs training for a World Cup qualifier, suggesting that he still enjoys high regard inside the Brazil setup.
Postecoglou obviously has a lot of faith in Emerson to step up and perform well off the bench under trying circumstances. In these kinds of circumstances, the comparison between Porro and Emerson is useful because the former is more better moving forward yet the latter may predict an outcome.
