Italians eventually lost to Spurs after a thriller at San Siro.
Serie A giants Inter Milan have been hit with a massive €45,000 (£38,000) fine by European football’s governing body Uefa following the racist abuse suffered by Tottenham Hotspur front man Emmanuel Adebayor during a Europa League match last mont, reports Sky Sports.
The fine handed down to the Italian club also takes into account other problems with the home supporters at San Siro for the second leg of the round of 32 tie, including Inter’s “insufficient organisation” of the fixture, as well as objects that were thrown on to the pitch and fireworks set off by Inter fans.
The match itself finished in a 4-1 win for Inter after extra time, however, the North London club’s away strike, netted by Togo international Adebayor, was enough to see Andre Villas-Boas’s side through to the last eight on the away goals rule.
Uefa confirmed that its disciplinary panel also fined Benfica 32,000 euros for crowd incidents in their clash with Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux.
