Following the game, Spurs boss was asked about the incident.
“I cannot run away from the question and I think Eric Dier did something that we professionals cannot but, in these circumstances, something that every one of us would do,” Mourinho said. “When someone insults you and your family is there, and your family gets involved with the person that is insulting you, in this case your younger brother, I think Eric did what we professionals cannot. But, I repeat, probably every one of us would do. I am with the player and understand the player.”
