AVB Demands UEFA Action Over Racist Chanting in Milan

MOST COMMENTED

Andre Villas-Boas called for immediate UEFA action against Inter Milan for its supporters’ racist chanting against Tottenham players during Spurs’ 4-1 loss to the Italian giant at the San Siro on Thursday. Despite the loss, Tottenham still progressed to the quarterfinal thanks to the away goals rule, its 3-0 win in London last week proving the difference in the series.

"UEFA set out to act on that situation,” Villas-Boas said after the game, referring to audible monkey noises coming from the crowd. “It was very, very easy to hear the chanting so I'm sure UEFA will act on it. It's very difficult for Inter Milan because it's happened before. It doesn't mar the game but it's something that should not have happened."

Inter has already been fined $84,691 by the Italian authorities this season for racist offenses from their supporters against Chievo Verona and then again in the derby against AC Milan, when Milan players Mario Balotelli and Sulley Muntari were the objects of their abuse.
