Dele Alli remains in the dark as to whether he will face a ban from the Football Association  over the Snapchat video where he appeared to mock an Asian man and joked about coronavirus, report The Sun.

Alli was given until March 5 to issue his response but is still waiting on an FA disciplinary panel to issue their verdict despite the fact that The Sun understands that the disciplinary panel are able to meet by video conference.

Dier was charged with improper and/or threatening conduct after he jumped into the west stand of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to reportedly protect his brother.

The video from Alli surfaced three-months ago with the Spurs midfielder immediately issuing an apology for any offence caused.

The Sun expects Alli to be hit with a ban under the charge of anti-discrimination regulations demonstrated in the Snapchat post.

Mourinho said to The Sun when the video came to light: “The player understands the gravity of the situation.

“The player is a good guy, the player even in the dressing room has a big Asian friend that he loves.

“I think he learned the lesson immediately with the embarrassment and he didn’t need  much time to realise again the childish or naivety of the situation.”

Spurs return to Premier League action when Manchester United are the visitors to North London on Friday 19th June.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is highly likely Dele Alli will face a ban for this. It was an act of insensitivity and nativity, which hopefully, he will learn from. Thankfully this break has allowed our squad to return fully fit so we will not be short of options if/when Alli receives his ban.
