UEFA had "no plans" on Friday to launch an investigation into allegations Holland's black players were racially abused during a training session in Krakow.

Members of Bert van Marwijk's European Championship squad were allegedly subjected to monkey chants during an open training session on Wednesday, with captain Mark van Bommel branding the incident "a real disgrace".

But UEFA confirmed on Friday morning morning there would be no probe into events at the Stadion Miejski - the home of Wisla Krakow - because the Dutch Football Association had told them they "did not believe the abuse was racially motivated".
