French police have arrested three men following a gang attack on a bar packed with English football fans in Lyon.
Tottenham Hotspur fans said around 50 masked men, some making Nazi salutes, smashed doors and threw chairs, wooden objects and a flare into the Smoking Dog pub where up to 150 supporters had gathered ahead a match against the French side.
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed three of their fans suffered "minor injuries" after an attack in a Lyon pub last night.
Around 50 masked thugs attacked the Smoking Dog pub where roughly 150 Spurs fans had gathered on the eve of their Europa League match against the French side.
A Tottenham spokesman said: "Club officials attended an incident last night in Lyon. A group of around 50 people confronted fans. The situation was dealt with and arrests were made within the hour. Three fans sustained minor injuries and received prompt medical assistance.
"Spurs officials and stewards will be in the city throughout the day, along with matchday French police ahead of kick-off."
One eyewitness who did not want to be named, said:
There were 50 who attacked in the first wave and 25 in the second. It's a pretty scary thing when you're confronted by people doing Nazi salutes.
A lit flare was thrown through the window as well as the heavy weight, the kind that's used on terraces to hold down umbrellas. It was terrifying. I've never seen anything like it. They threw iron stools through the windows as well.
