Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier has been banned for four games and warned over his future conduct after climbing into the stands to confront a fan following Spurs’s FA Cup defeat by Norwich City in March.
The England international has also been hit with a £40,000 fine, after an independent Regulatory Commission found Dier’s actions to have been of a “threatening” nature.
A Football Association statement read: “Eric Dier has been suspended for four matches with immediate effect, fined £40,000 and warned as to his future conduct following a breach of FA Rule E3.
“The Tottenham Hotspur FC player admitted that his actions at the conclusion of a fixture against Norwich City FC in The FA Cup on 04 March 2020 were improper but denied that they were also threatening.
“An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently found Eric Dier’s actions to be threatening.”
