Dier suspended for four matches after jumping into stands and confronting a fan

Eric Dier has been banned for four games after he jumped into the crowd to confront a supporter after Tottenham’s FA Cup fifth-round loss to Norwich.

The defensive midfielder jumped over the advertising hoardings and into the stands to chase down the fan following the penalty shoot-out loss in March, with footage of the incident going viral on social media.

The ban comes into play with immediate effect, and the England international has also been fined £40,000.

According to the FA, Dier had admitted improper conduct but had said that his actions were not aggressive – a claim which was dismissed by the English football authority.

Spurs were beaten at home by the Premier League’s bottom club on penalties after the game finished 1-1 after extra time.
