Tottenham Hotspur Midfielder Dele Alli suspended for Manchester United game

🚨 BREAKING: Dele Alli suspended for Manchester United game

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has been ruled out of the Manchester United game after being handed a one-match ban following a social media post he made about coronavirus back in February according to BBC. The England international published a Snapchat video in February where he joked about the outbreak and appeared to mock an Asian man.

The Football Association suspended him for next Friday’s clash against United, which is Tottenham’s first game back since the pandemic outbreak in March.

“The Tottenham Hotspur FC player denied that a social media post breached FA Rule E3(1), as it was insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute, and constituted an “Aggravated Breach”, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference, whether express or implied, to race and/or color and/or ethnic origin and/or nationality,” an FA statement read.

Apart from missing the United clash, the England international will also pay a £50,000 fine and go on an education course.

A statement released by the Football Association on Thursday read: “The Tottenham Hotspur FC player denied that a social media post breached FA Rule E3(1), as it was insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute, and constituted an “Aggravated Breach”, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference, whether express or implied, to race and/or color and/or ethnic origin and/or nationality. However, it was subsequently found proven by an Independent Regulatory Commission.”

The 24-year-old had posted a video to Snapchat almost four months ago in which he joked about the outbreak and appeared to mock an Asian man. He then quickly deleted the video and issued an apology to the Chinese social media network Weibo.

The absence of the midfielder is a blow for Tottenham Coach Mourinho as they seek to fight for a place in the top four.
