UEFA: Dele Alli gets 3-Match Ban for Horror tackle in Europa League



Dele Alli

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been banned for three European matches after being sent off against Gent at Wembley in the Europa League in February, BBC reports.

Alli received a straight red card for a challenge on Brecht Dejaegere in the 2-2 draw.

The ban means Alli will miss half of Tottenham’s Champions League group campaign next season if they qualify by finishing in the top 3 of the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, Arsenal also faced UEFA’s punishment after been fined £4,300 for the lack of discipline shown by their fans against Bayern Munich in the 5-1 loss at Emirates Stadium.

UEFA went further to fine Bayern Munich £2,600 after their supporters delayed the tie at Emirates stadium by throwing rolls of paper into the pitch in protest against ticket prices.

Saint-Etienne has also been fined £43,000 after their fans set off fireworks and threw objects during their Europa League encounter against Manchester United at Old Trafford last month.

Alli also missed the final three games of last season’s Premier League after being found guilty for punching West Brom‘s Claudio Yacob in the stomach.
