Lazio fans: Alleged 'anti-semetic' chanting against Spurs

Lazio fans: Alleged 'anti-semetic' chanting against Spurs

The Football Association will pass on its own report on the alleged anti-Semitic chanting during Thursday night's Europa League game between Lazio and Tottenham to UEFA.

Shortly after revealing a 'Free Palestine' banner, a section of the home support began singing "Juden Tottenham" to the fans of the London club in the goalless draw, who have a historical Jewish connection.

UEFA would not comment on the matter on Thursday night, saying it would only be able to look in to the issue if it was mentioned in the match delegate's report, which is due to arrive with European football's governing body on Friday.

The incidents at the match followed an attack on Spurs supporters in the early hours of Thursday morning in a bar in Rome. Eleven people were injured in the attack, and one of them was recovering from being stabbed in the head and leg.

An FA spokesperson said: "We were saddened and alarmed to see reports of violent incidents prior to the game as well as anti-Semitic chants.

"The FA had a crowd control advisor present at the fixture who will provide an urgent report which we will pass on to UEFA as a matter of priority."
