Tottenham find no evidence of racism against Rudiger
Tottenham say there is no evidence to support allegations of racism from Spurs fans towards Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger during their Premier League encounter on 22 December.
Play was stopped during Chelsea’s win at Tottenham after German defender Rudiger said he heard monkey noises.
A Spurs statement said the club and the Metropolitan Police had “now exhausted all avenues of investigation”.
Spurs added that the police had closed the crime report on the matter.
The Tottenham statement added: “We fully support Antonio Rudiger with the action that he took - however there is no evidence to corroborate or contradict the allegation and as such neither ourselves nor the police are in a position to take any further action.”
A total of six arrests were made following the match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as part of the Metropolitan Police operation at the fixture, but none were linked to the incident involving Rudiger.
