Tottenham Player Is Regularly Breaching UEFA Rules And The Club Have Received A Warning

Spurs goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini has been breaking UEFA rules with his choice of gloves.

The 26-year-old, signed on a season-long-loan from Atalanta, has been playing second fiddle to captain Hugo Lloris.

He's been playing in the Europa Conference League games but UEFA are not happy with him breaching their regulations.

As per The Sun, Spurs have even received a warning regarding the breach and are facing a face if further offences occur.

As well as being the penalty shoot-out hero in the Carabao Cup against Wolves, Gollini has played three times in the Conference League - most recently the 2-2 draw with Rennes.

The former Aston Villa man is set to be back in action against Slovenian side NS Mura at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night.

UEFA, meanwhile, have a knack of taking issue with logos and motifs in their competitions.

In the Champions League, Inter Milan have had to get rid of the blue and black snake from their away kit because UEFA deem it to be an "irregular pattern".

When they played against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, the Nerazzurri played out a 0-0 draw in a plain white design.

UEFA regulations state:

"The choice of pattern is unrestricted with the following exceptions (to be assessed at the sole discretion of the UEFA administration):

– the pattern must be non-pictorial, e.g. it must not contain any images, illustrations or any other symbols (any pattern that does not satisfy this requirement will be considered as a decorative element);

– the pattern must not allow a reasonable person to identify a manufacturer or sponsor relevant to the equipment (any pattern than does not satisfy this requirement will be considered a trademark)."
