Tottenham star Dele Alli may miss Manchester United clash with FA to rule on Snapchat video

As reported by the Evening Standard, Tottenham star Dele Alli could be set to miss the Premier League restart as he faces an FA hearing over the controversial Snapchat video he posted back in February.

Alli had been charged with discrimination and bringing the game into disrepute by the FA, after he posted a video on his Snapchat account. In the video, he appeared to mock a man of Asian appearance and the coronavirus outbreak, which was largely confined to Asia back then.

Alli had taken the video down immediately and had also issued an apology over the matter after it had leaked. The England international then appealed the ruling, saying that, while in bad taste, the video was meant for private consumption and was never intended for the public. (h/t Evening Standard)

“I just wanted to apologise on my behalf for the video I posted on Snapchat yesterday. It wasn’t funny and I realised that immediately and took it down. I let myself down and the club.”

As per the report, the 24-year-old’s appeal will be heard by a three-person independent commission on Wednesday or Thursday this week. Following which, the midfielder will learn if he can take part in Spurs’ first game against Manchester United.

There are no predetermined set of sanctions for the improper usage of social media. But in a largely similar incident, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva was handed a one-match ban and a fine of £50,000, after an ill-advised tweet about teammate Benjamin Mendy. (h/t Evening Standard)

The report also adds that if found guilty, Alli would need to complete a mandatory education course.

There is no question that the video posted by Alli was in poor taste. And, it now remains to be seen if the FA find him guilty. If so, it will be a blow for us as he may miss a crucial encounter against United.
