Inter Milan have been charged by UEFA over alleged racist chants made by their supporters during the Europa League tie against Tottenham at the San Siro last week.

Monkey chants could be heard during the game which Spurs lost but still progressed to the quarter-finals on the away goals rule with Emmanuel Adebayor the main target, while an inflatable banana was also seen in the crowd.

UEFA have also charged Inter with 'insufficient organisation' and the 'throwing of missiles and/or fireworks'.

The Italians' case will be heard on April 19.

Should the Serie A side be found guilty it would be the second time this season; they were fined £43,000 after the club's fans racially abused former Inter players Mario Balotelli and Sulley Muntari, both now with AC Milan, during the Milan derby last month.

Earlier this season Lazio were fined on two separate occasions after their fans were heard making racist chants during their two group stage encounters against Tottenham.

Spurs booked a quarter-finals at the expense of Inter despite going down 4-1 at the San Siro last Thursday, with Swiss side Basel standing in the way of a last four in the Europa League.
