The pair are believed to have left their seats before half-time, but not before shouting abuse at the journalist, telling him that they would “see you after the game”.

He was found another seat in the ground and offered an escort out of the ground, which he says was not necessary in the end.

The incident represents yet another example of English football’s problem with anti-Semitism.

In December 2018 Chelsea condemned a number of their fans for the use of anti-Semitic chants during their 2-2 Europa League draw away to Hungary’s MOL Vidi, and Tottenham themselves have been urged to take stronger action against their fans’ use of the nickname ‘yids’.

In January, the Community Security Trust, the Jewish Leadership Council and Action Against Discrimination told the Independent that the club needs to “take a stand” against the use of the word.

Tottenham have previously stated that while they have a “zero-tolerance position” regarding anti-Semitism, they insist that their supporters use of the word is not “intended to cause offence”.
