Tottenham fined by UEFA

English Premier League club, Tottenham has been fined €15,000 over two Champions League incidents.

UEFA found Spurs culpable of delaying the start to the second half against Ajax in the first leg, and a €10,000 fine was issued.

The remaining €5,000 is due to a pitch invasion from Spurs supporters after defeating Man City, at the Etihad, in the quarterfinal.

Tottenham were among several clubs fined by UEFA for infractions committed during the tournament. Barcelona were also punished for their group stage match against Spurs, in which they were said to be ill-prepared, as well as for attacks on traveling fans by security.

According to the AP, Tottenham supporters caught the incident on video, and the footage was circulated through social media.

Spurs also kicked off a game late in the group stage, which resulted in the Mauricio Pochettino’s first infraction. Managers are held responsible for the timely start and restart of any match.

After a second incident, Pochettino was given a one-match ban by the ruling body. However, the touchline ban is delayed for a year and will not affect his sideline presence for the Champions League final.

Tottenham play Liverpool on June 1 having fought their way through the tournament, beating Dortmund, Man City and Ajax in the knockout rounds.

This is the first time the club has reached the final of the competition, and the squad and manager are thrilled about the prospect of lifting football’s most prestigious trophy aloft.
