Red Star Belgrade fans at Tottenham game despite racism ban

LONDON (AP) Red Star Belgrade coach Vladan Milojevic thanked the club's fans for finding a way to circumvent a ban from attending the Champions League match at Tottenham as part of a sanction for racist chanting from UEFA.

Hundreds of Red Star fans found a way to get tickets to seat in a home section behind one of the goals at the north London stadium and were singing from early in the game.

Stadium security and police eventually surrounded the fans but they stayed throughout their team's 5-0 loss on Tuesday but officials determined the group was too large to eject.
