Juventus fined 30,000 euros for racism

Juventus has been fined 30,000 euros after fans chanted racist

slurs and unfurled a banner during its 1-0 weekend win over AC

Milan.

The Serie A sporting judge cited a racist chant, an

”insulting” chorus and an ”offensive” banner unfurled during

Sunday’s match.

The club insisted it was committed to ending racism at its

matches and complained that it was being singled out. Juventus said

in a statement Monday on its website that such penalties should be

applied ”elsewhere with the same accuracy and co-operation from

clubs.”

Juventus won after Arturo Vidal converted a second-half penalty

when Milan’s reserve goalkeeper Marco Amelia tripped Kwadwo

Asamoah. Milan was without suspended Mario Balotelli.
