A suspended one-match European competition suspension was granted to Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho, UEFA reported.

After Tottenham was late for kick-off in their 1-0 Europa League loss to Royal Antwerp on October 29, Mourinho was sanctioned.

The late kick-off at the Bosuilstadion in Antwerp last month was found to be the fault of the Spurs manager, while the suspension was “delayed for a one-year probationary period, beginning from the date of the present decision.”

Tottenham was also fined EUR 25,000 (£ 23,000) for being liable for the late kick-off, while the Premier League side was also fined EUR 3,000 (£ 2,600) for breaching the rules on UEFA equipment.

Over three matchdays on six points, Spurs top Group J in the Europa League, ahead of Antwerp and LASK on goal difference.

After beating Ludogorets earlier this month, Mourinho’s Tottenham won just their second victory in their past 10 away Europa League matches.
