Tottenham Hotspurs’ Supporters’ Trust has condemned chanting directed at Liverpool fans during their 1-1 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

Tottenham fans were heard chanting, “sign on” a chant that aims to mock unemployment levels within the city.

Spurs have released a statement claiming that chants that make light of poverty and homelessness are: “not what we are about, we’re Tottenham Hotspur, we’re better than that.”

The trust also said that: “There is a cost of living crisis throughout England, including in London. Our club represents an area and community with the fastest growing rate of unemployment in the country”

Liverpool Supporters’ Union, Spirit of Shankly, in response to the statement, posted on Twitter saying: “Well said!”


The draw at Anfield left Liverpool second in the Premier League, three points behind leaders Manchester City after their 5-0 win over Newcastle United.

Spurs are currently 5th and four points off Arsenal who currently occupy the final Champions League slot.
