Tottenham's Dele Alli handed three-match European ban

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been suspended for three European club matches after he was sent off against Gent last month, UEFA has announced.

Alli received a straight red card for his reckless tackle on Gent's Brecht Dejaegere, in which the 20-year-old speared his right foot high into Dejaegere's shin.

The ban will relate to any European club matches, meaning Alli will miss the first three games of next season's Champions League if Spurs qualify for the tournament again.
