Dier scored in the penalty shootout but Norwich keeper Tim Krul saved two efforts to put the Canaries into the quarter-finals of the English domestic football cup competition. Commenting on the English international who has attained 40 England caps to date, Mourinho said:

I repeat, we professionals cannot do it, but I repeat I am with the player and I understand the player. The fans were with the team until the last penalty kick that we missed. This person insulted Eric, the family was there [and] the younger brother was not happy with the situation.”

Asked if the club was planning to take action against Dier, Mourinho said if the club takes this course of action, he would not be in agreement, although noting that Dier did wrong. Mourinho added: “The people that are in these privileged positions by the tunnel, of course, some are Tottenham fans.

But I think a lot of corporate, a lot of invitation, a lot of people with special status [are in there] and probably, it is the place of the stadium where I sometimes have doubts over if they are the real Tottenham fans, because these [real fans] are the ones who support the boys until the last.”
