MANAGER CLAIMS 'OVERREACTION': In London, Jamie Jackson wrote that CSKA Moscow Manager Leonid Slutsky said the claims of racial abuse by fans is an "overreaction" and "the situation has been exaggerated," though he made it clear "the club is against all racism." In a press conference, Slutsky said, "We have black players and we give them support. We did not hear any racist chants [so] it is difficult to comment." Slutsky did not offer an apology, but CSKA captain Sergei Ignashevich did, saying "We are sorry that such unpleasant indicent took place" (GUARDIAN, 11/4).
