But the charges will not be considered until after they have announced Christian Vieri’s fate concerning our complaint that he racially abused Lomana LuaLua.

European football’s governing body claim though to be doubtful that there is enough evidence to charge Inter with anything in connection with their fans’ behaviour.

"We are looking at allegations around that game," said UEFA spokesman Mike Lee.

"The Vieri thing will be dealt with the first and we're talking with both clubs concerned.

"Then, the matter will be assessed and then a decision will be made about putting it before the disciplinary committee."

Vieri’s case will be heard on Friday.
