FIFA open disciplinary proceedings against Dele Alli

FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli after the player was caught making an obscene gesture during an England match, the world governing body announced on Friday.
Alli was caught sticking his middle finger up during the national side’s World Cup qualifier against Slovakia on Monday.

He said after the match the gesture had been directed as a joke at teammate Kyle Walker.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking on Thursday, had played down the incident.

“It’s true it’s not a fantastic gesture but it’s not a big issue. It was a joke in a moment with his teammate. I don’t think it’ll be a big issue with FIFA or with us.”

Alli, 21, has had a number of run-ins with the football authorities and has faced calls to curb his fiery temperament.
