AVB: UEFA will act on chants
Andre Villas-Boas expects UEFA to act after Inter Milan fans appeared to racially abuse Tottenham players as they fought back to reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.
Tottenham progressed on away goals after losing 4-1 against Inter, but the game was tarnished by the actions of the home support as monkey chants were heard at the San Siro and an inflatable banana was seen in the crowd.
Emmanuel Adebayor, who scored the crucial goal in extra-time, appeared to be the target of much of the racist abuse and Spurs manager Villas-Boas believes UEFA will take action.
"It's a very sensitive situation," Villas-Boas said of the chanting. "UEFA set out to act on that situation.
"It was very, very easy to hear the chanting so I am sure that UEFA will act on it.
"It's difficult for Inter Milan because it is something that in some way has happened before.
"It doesn't mar the game but it is something that should have been avoided."
