UEFA claim that they 'need time' to consider whether to investigate Inter Milan amid allegations of racist abuse from their fans against Tottenham.

UEFA have stated that they 'need more time' to consider whether to launch an investigation into racism claims made following Tottenham Hotspur's clash with Inter Milan.

Last night's Europa League game, which Spurs won on away goals, was marred by alleged racist chants from Milan fans at the San Siro.

Following the contest, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas urged the European governing body to take action, but UEFA have told Sky Sports News that they will wait to make a decision.

Meanwhile, Spurs will learn who they will face in the quarter-finals of the European competition in a draw in Nyon, Switzerland today.
