UEFA have charged Tottenham Hotspur after a fan was able to invade the pitch during their Champions League quarter-final with Manchester City on Tuesday.

As reported by Skysports, the governing body of European football have also opened an investigation into the incident.

The supporter entered the field of play at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and confronted City man Fabian Delph before being escorted away by a steward.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was pictured trying to intervene as well as midfielder Christian Eriksen, who is believed to have been advised against doing so by referee Bjorn Kuipers.

It was only the second competitive match to have been held at the 62,000 seater, with the other match having come against Crystal Palace in the Premier League a week earlier.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body will hear the case on May 16, where the North London club could face a fine.

The supporter is understood to have been banned from attending Tottenham Hotspur matches in the future.

Pochettino’s men return to the stadium this weekend, hosting already-relegated Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.
