Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a fine by UEFA’s disciplinary panel following crowd disturbances during their Europa Conference League clash against Vitesse Arnhem, according to The Daily Mail.
After losing to Vitesse in the Netherlands, Spurs overcame the Dutch club 3-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on November 4 in what was Antonio Conte’s first game in charge.
However, the North Londoners learned this week that Vitesse would progress to the knockout stages of the competition at their expense after UEFA ruled that Spurs had forfeited their clash against Rennes, which was called off due to Covid-19 outbreak at the Premier League club.
To rub salt into the wound, UEFA have now handed Spurs a fine of £6620 for crowd disturbances in their 3-2 win over Vitesse.
Spurs were fined €5,000 (£4270) for a pitch invasion during the game and an additional €2,750 euro (£2350) for the throwing of objects from the stands.
The Dutch side were also fined €5,625 euro (£4,808) for the throwing of objects as well as €5,000 (£4270) euro for crowd disturbances.
Spurs Web Opinion
It was evident that some of the Vitesse fans who travelled to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium came looking for a fight. However, Spurs fans should not have got involved in throwing objects back at the away fans and I believe UEFA are right to fine both clubs.
