Too Bad!! FA To Investigate Racist Chants To Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min In FA Cup Match (Read)

Racist chants directed at Tottenham forward Son Heung-min during his side’s FA Cup quarter-final win over Millwall are to be investigated by the Football Association, BBC Sport understands.
Taunts of “DVD” and “he’s selling three for a fiver” were directed at the South Korean during Spurs’ 6-0 victory.
The chants seem to refer to a racist stereotype of Asians as traders selling bootleg copies of films door to door.
Millwall boss Neil Harris said guilty fans should be dealt with “harshly”.
“It’s a shame to be talking about this,” added Harris, who watched on as Son scored a hat-trick to send Tottenham into the semi-finals.
“I didn’t hear anything but myself and the club, we won’t condone that if there is. I’m sure it will be investigated and left to the authorities.
“We want people dealt with harshly of course. It’s wrong in society and wrong in football.”
Lord Ouseley, chairman of anti-racism group Kick It Out and a Millwall fan, told the Associated Press news agency: “If complaints are made they will have to be looked at to see if they have any validity to see if it stirs up racial hatred.”
Millwall are still under investigation by the FA after Leicester complained about the behaviour of the club’s fans following their victory in the previous round.
And on Sunday there was a heavy police presence outside White Hart Lane before kick-off, with supporters of both teams having to be separated as skirmishes occurred, while bangers, flares and bottles were all thrown.
