TOTTENHAM’S complaints on behalf of fans attacked in the Nou Camp in December have led to Uefa charges against Barcelona.

Spurs contacted Uefa on behalf of the supporters who were railroaded into the upper section and attacked by stewards and police at the defining group stage draw in December.

Tottenham’s actions mirror similar complaints by Chelsea after their trip to Catalonia last season.

Chelsea’s case remains unresolved but there has been more movement in the Spurs allegations.

Uefa have now confirmed that, following a probe by their ethics and disciplinary inspector, Barcelona have been charged with “insufficient organisation” at the game.

It is likely the case, which will be dealt with by Uefa on March 28, will result in only a small fine for the Spanish giants.

But Tottenham’s decision to publicly back the fans and lobby on behalf of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust, who catalogued a dossier of incidents described the trip as “one of the worst we have experienced”, has at least been rewarded with some action.

Meanwhile, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has accepted an improper conduct charge for his outburst at referee Mike Dean.

Pochettino got into the referee’s face at full-time after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor.

The 46-year-old could now get a touchline ban but is entitled to a hearing with the FA’s disciplinary panel.

Dean, 50, has been taken off Spurs’ clash with Chelsea on Wednesday.
