The incident happened in the area behind the dugouts, which is a corporate section, and Mourinho criticised it for not housing "real Tottenham fans".

He added: "The people that are lucky enough to stand by the tunnel, of course most are Tottenham fans."
"But I think a lot of corporate, a lot of invitation, a lot of people with special status are in there and probably it is the place of the stadium where I sometimes have doubts whether or not they are the real Tottenham fans, because these so call real fans  are the ones who support the boys until the very last".The Portuguese concluded
