Partizan manager Marko Nikolic has praised the home crowd following his side's 0-0 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in Serbia.

The 35-year-old, who was apparently unaware of the anti-Semitic banner brandished by local fans, described the atmosphere in Belgrade as "wonderful".

He told reporters: "I want to congratulate the crowd. The support was great and not only great but everything went well.

"It was a wonderful, sporting environment without the slightest problem."
