Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier has been charged by the Football Association after he charged into the crowd to confront a supporter after their FA Cup defeat to Norwich City.
A statement from the FA read: “Eric Dier has been charged with misconduct. It is alleged that the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder’s actions at the conclusion of the FA Cup fixture against Norwich City on Wednesday March 4 were improper and/or threatening.”
The FA said the England international has until May 8 to respond to its charge.
Dier climbed up the stands at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before being pulled away by stewards following Spurs’ fifth-round penalty shoot-out defeat to the Canaries last month.
He was attempting to confront a supporter who was believed to have been involved in a row with his brother, with his actions prompting a mixed response from the world of football, with some sympathising with the player considering the abuse faced from some fans, while others feel he should have kept his cool.
