Tottenham coach Joe Jordan has branded Gennaro Gattuso "pathetic" after the AC Milan midfielder claimed a racist remark provoked his headbutt this week.

Gattuso has been charged with "gross unsporting conduct" by UEFA after headbutting former Milan striker Jordan following Spurs' 1-0 Champions League last-16 first-leg win at the San Siro on Tuesday.

UEFA's control and disciplinary body will discuss the case against the 33-year-old Italian on February 21.

Jordan has rubbished allegations that he made a remark, saying: "To come up with something like that is pathetic. It is completely and utterly untrue and something so wildly inaccurate doesn't do him much credit."

He added: "He clearly doesn't realise I consider playing for Milan the proudest time of my career, that my daughter lives and works in Italy and that I love the country and the people.


 

"It's just a nonsense, it really is."
