Adebayor, in the first leg of the Champions League against Tottenham
Tottenham has warned their fans that they will take measures against anyone who repeats the offensive chants that took place in the Bernabéu last week, directed at Real Madrid’s Togolese forward, Emmanuel Adebayor.

According to a report from the “Spurs,” the club will set up a mobile phone so that fans who hear or observe any type of offense toward a player during Wednesday’s game against Real Madrid at White Hart Lane can report it to the club via text message.

“We do not tolerate discrimination of any sort at the club, on the pitch, or in the stands. If you experience any form of discrimination, help us to eliminate it from football by reporting it,” urged Tottenham in their message, posted on the club’s webpage, as a preventative measure before the return leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

As a consciousness-raising message for fans of the club, the “Spurs” asked that they do not support the “mindless supporters who are intent on ruining [the] day” and that, in the event of witnessing any abusive act, they use the text message alert system.
