Three Spurs’ fans hospitalised after attack in Lyon

 Three Spurs’ fans hospitalised after attack in Lyon

Sky Sports informs a masked gang committed an assault on Tottenham fans in Lyon’s pub. As a result of the attack three Spurs’ fans were hospitalized, one with a head injury.

Up to 150 Spurs’ fans were drinking in Smoking Dog pub ahead of the Europe League clash against the local team, when the group of masked people smashed doors and threw cast iron chairs and a flare into the pub.

The pub’s landlord Dave Eales said: “At 10.18 the pub was rammed with Tottenham fans watching the Champions League on the television. The front of the pub, which is made up of reinforced glass, was attacked by 20-25 people. They threw projectiles through the windows. There was a stand off. They didn’t get in to the bar. Then it calmed down. Then they came back a second time and it all started again. There were three injured Tottenham fans taken away by ambulance. One of them had a head injury. I’m not sure how bad it was.”
