CSKA boss Slutsky: Spurs fans have nothing to fear

CSKA Moscow manager Leonid Slutsky insists Tottenham Hotspur supporters do not have to fear any trouble in Russia.

Spurs meet CSKA in the Champions League on Tuesday night and Slutsky, who coached Russia at Euro2016, says there will be no repeat of the fan violence that occurred between Russian and English supporters in France.

"I believe that those English fans who come to Moscow to support their favourites will enjoy a high level of hospitality, not only at the stadium but everywhere," he said.

"I'm confident that they're in no danger. They have no reasons for fears."
