    Throughout the clash in N17, Tottenham fans were unhappy with what they deemed to be time-wasting from the shot-stopper.

    But after the game Foderingham posted on Instagram about the abuse he received.

    He wrote: “I don’t mind opposition fans calling me every name under the sun.

    “But be easy with the racism and family threats. Think before you type.”

    It read: “Sheffield United condemn the racist, abusive and threatening messages that have been sent to Wes Foderingham after yesterday’s game against Spurs.

    “The club will now work with relevant bodies to investigate and support Wes. There is no room for racism in our game.”

    A Tottenham statement added: “We are disgusted to hear of racist, abusive and threatening messages sent to Wes Foderingham following yesterday’s match.

    “The club stands firmly against all forms of discrimination and will cooperate fully with Sheffield United and the relevant bodies in their investigations.

    “We shall not hesitate in taking the strongest possible action, including club bans, against any so-called fan found responsible.”
