UEFA suspends Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli over horror tackle


UEFA on Friday announced that Tottenham midfielder, Dele Alli has been suspended for three European club matches for his sending off against Gent last month.

20 years old Alli received a straight red card for his horror tackle on Gent’s Brecht Dejaegere during the Premier League club’s shock Europa League exit.

Alli speared his right foot high into Dejaegere’s shin. The Belgian midfielder was able to continue initially but had to be substituted, limping off with a bloodied shin.

Alli will miss the first three games of next season’s Champions League if Spurs qualify for the tournament again, Punch reports.

Gent earned a 2-2 draw and 3-2 win on aggregate in the last 32 tie.
