Tottenham Hotspur have been charged by UEFA following their Champions League match against Manchester City at the new Spurs stadium on Tuesday night (Sky Sports).
An investigation was launched after a man ran onto the pitch to confront Man City defender Fabian Delph, before being immediately escorted away by stewards.
Even Mauricio Pochettino followed the man onto the pitch in an attempt to intervene and calm the situation down.
Christian Eriksen also attempted to get involved, but was held back by the match referee.
Tottenham’s case will now be heard at the UEFA Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary body on May 16.
The pitch invader has since been banned for life by Tottenham.
This incident will be the last thing Tottenham want just after opening their brand new stadium.
However, it becomes yet another example of a mindless ‘fan’ disrupting play and getting their own club in trouble over nothing.
Spurs will be hoping for no more major incidents in the competition this season.
