Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a warning by UEFA after Pierluigi Gollini’s goalkeeping gloves breached their logo regulations, according to The Sun.

The Italian was named in Nuno Espirito Santo’s starting eleven for the Europa Conference League group stage opener against Rennes earlier this month in place of Hugo Lloris.

The governing body deemed that the Reusch logo located on the finger of the glove was too big and was a breach of the strict rules in place.  If a repeat of the incident occurs, Tottenham would likely be slapped with a fine.

It remains to be seen whether Nuno will revert back to selecting the 26-year-old for tonight’s European tie against NK Mura at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, or will retain the services of club captain Hugo Lloris.

Gollini joined Tottenham on a season-long loan deal from Serie A outfit Atalanta in the summer which includes the option to make the deal permanent (Sky Sports).

It seems somewhat trivial that UEFA are so strict on sponsorship logos, when there are bigger problems in the game that are rearing their head and going relatively unpunished such as racism.
