ROME (AP) -A Tottenham fan who was stabbed in an apparent anti-Semitic raid ahead of a Europa League match with Lazio is being released from the hospital.

Ashley Mills met with reporters at the San Camillo hospital before his discharge Monday, saying that he is hoping to resume normal activity soon.

Mills would not comment on what happened during the raid at a pub in Rome's central square two weeks ago, saying "I don't really want to talk about it. ... My leg is getting a lot better now and that's the main thing.''

Mills' femoral artery was gashed on his right thigh and Dr. Piergiorgio Cao said that he risked losing his life had he not been operated on immediately.

Mills was flying back to London later Monday.
