Two Tottenham Hotspur fans decide against travelling to Italy for Spurs' Europa League clash against Inter Milan due to previous attacks.

Two Tottenham Hotspur fans have decided against travelling to Italy for their side's Europa League second leg against Inter Milan tonight due to fears of an attack.

Chris Allen, who was stabbed three times by yobs while in a bar in Rome for a Spurs game against Lazio, and brother-in-law Pete Stuart have opted to stay home.

"I wouldn't go again, it's just not worth the risk," Allen told The Sun.

Around 1,000 supporters are expected to travel to Italy for the clash, which Tottenham lead 3-0.
