thumbnail Hello,

The move comes in the wake of calls from Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas for the governing body to act, after home fans were heard chanting 'Juden Tottenham' during the match

The Football Association has announced that it will provide Uefa with a report from a crowd control advisor that observed Tottenham's clash against Lazio in Rome on Thursday evening.

Less than 24 hours prior to the match, 10 Spurs fans were attacked in a pub by, allegedly, supporters of the Serie A club, with Lazio denying any connection with the incident.

The controversial behaviour of the home fans continued into the match, as sections of the crowd were heard chanting "Juden Tottenham".

In his post-match interview, Andre Villas-Boas called for Uefa to act for a second time, as Lazio have already been fined £32,000 for making monkey chants towards players the last time the sides met in September, and the FA have confirmed that an employed advisor's report will soon be sent to Uefa for review.

An FA statement read: "The FA will be providing Uefa with a report from their crowd control advisor present in Rome on Thursday night for Tottenham Hotspur's Europa League meeting with Lazio."

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."
