AVB avoids comment on chants

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas tried to deflect attention away from the anti-Semitic chants that marred Tottenham's 3-1 victory over West Ham.

Just four days after a Spurs fan was stabbed before Tottenham's game against Lazio, West Ham fans aimed a flurry of deeply offensive chants towards the home support about the attack. The chants were heard from the away end during Sunday's game, which was settled by a brace from Jermain Defoe.

Villas-Boas said: "I prefer not to mar the performance with a situation like this. You know the animosity there is between Tottenham and West Ham and as long as it doesn't reach stupidity it is a great, great rivalry of two London clubs."
