Alli to miss Manchester United clash. Tottenham midfielder apologises for coronavirus-related social media post.
Dele Alli will miss Tottenham’s return to Premier League action against Manchester United next week because the FA handed him a one-game suspension for a social media post.
The 24-year-old has also been fined £50,000 and ordered to undertake a face-to-face education course following a breach of FA Rule E3.
The incident relates to a video posted on the player’s Snapchat account in February in which he appeared to mock an Asian man and joke about the coronavirus outbreak.
“In response to the FA decision, I would like to apologise again for any offence caused by my behaviour,” Alli said in a statement to the club’s website.
