FA To Investigate EPL U21 Game Incidents; Inter Milan Fined For Fans' Behavior
Published February 27, 2013
ITALIAN ISSUES: The BBC reported Serie A side Inter Milan has been fined €50,000 ($65,340) after its fans "were found guilty of racially abusing former Inter striker Mario Balotelli." Ex-Manchester City striker Balotelli was also fined €10,000 ($13,100) for an "insulting gesture" toward Inter fans. The 22-year-old Italian int'l, who joined Milan in January, "raised a finger to his lips during Sunday's match at the San Siro in an apparent attempt to stop the abuse from the Inter fans." But Serie A's disciplinary commissioner deemed that "he had gesticulated to the opposition supporters and a fine was imposed" (BBC, 2/26).
