Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas insists that he is fully behind winger Danny Rose, who claims that he was racially abused during England Under-21s' victory over Serbia.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that he has spoken to winger Danny Rose following the racial abuse he suffered while featuring for the England Under-21s.

The 22-year-old, who is currently on loan from Spurs at Sunderland, has claimed that he was the subject of monkey chants from Serbian supporters during the Three Lions' 1-0 win over Serbia in their Euro 2013 qualifier.

"It's extremely difficult for Danny," said Villas-Boas. "He was disappointed by that happening, by the situation which he had to live with, the atmosphere he was confronted with.

"I told Daniel I support him completely in this situation. He felt abused and this is obviously a serious matter which at the moment is in the hands of both FAs."

Meanwhile, Spurs are preparing to take on Chelsea at White Hart Lane this Saturday.
