Arrest made after Tottenham stadium vandalised during international break

A person has been arrested for vandalising the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during the international break with the cost of damage running into six-figures, according to reports.

It is thought that the incident, which occurred on Monday night, is not related to anti-semitism.

Spurs have close links to the Jewish community which has reported rise in anti-semitic incidents following Hamas’ attack on Israel and subsequent breakout of war in the Middle East.

A Tottenham statement read: ‘We can confirm that an individual was arrested for criminal damage following an incident that took place on Monday night.

‘There is no indication that this incident is linked to anti-semitism.’

According to the Daily Mail, ‘significant damage’ has been caused to parts of the stadium which will cost over £100,000 to repair.

Spurs only moved into the £1.2 billion Tottenham Hotspur Stadium four years ago after they relocated from White Hart Lane.

The 63,000-seater stadium has a number of purposes and is also used to host music concerts and NFL London matches among other events.

Tottenham are due to play at home on October 23 after the international break as the Premier League leaders host Fulham.

Despite selling Harry Kane this summer, Spurs have enjoyed a remarkable start under new head coach Ange Postecoglou, who has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for both August and September.

Kane’s absence has been bringing the best out of the likes of summer signing James Maddison and South Korean star Son Heung-min, who were named Premier League Player of the Month in and August and September respectively.
