Following an incident where Eric Dier confronted a fan in the stands in the match against Norwich City on March 4, 2020, the FA has charged the player with misconduct.

Eric Dier climbed into the stands to confront a fan who insulted him - actually his brother - after Spurs defeat to Norwich City last month. Dier is now charged with misconduct by FA that says the player is charged for a breach of FA Rule E3

Spurs were knocked out on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Norwich in a fifth-round clash at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs lost to Norwich City in a penalty shoot-out; when Dier scored his penalty, the actions of a fan probably insulting him, caused the player to climb into the stand to clash with the insulter.

Stewards intervened to separate the England international from the individual.

After the incident, Spurs boss, Jose Mourinho, said that his player had reacted to the insults towards his younger brother and that he did not agree if the club took action against the player.

On Thursday, the FA confirmed: "Eric Dier has been charged with misconduct for a breach of FA Rule E3. 

"It is alleged that the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder's actions at the conclusion of the Emirates FA Cup fixture against Norwich City on Wednesday March 4 2020 were improper and/or threatening. 

"Eric Dier has until Friday May 8 2020 to provide a response."

Dier has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season.
