Serie A: AC Milan To Play Next Game In Empty Stadium After Racist Chants

share on:

Following racist insults at Ghana’s Kwadwo Asamoah and other dark-skinned players of Juventus FC, AC Milan has been ordered to play their next Serie A match behin closed doors.

Italian football’s long-standing problem reappeared last weekend when visiting Milan fans reportedly targeted two of Juventus’s black players, Frenchman Paul Pogba and Ghanaian Kwadwo Asamoah, with racist chanting.

Milan went on to lose 3-2 and the Rossoneri’s woes — they are currently 12th, 13 points behind leaders Roma — deepened when disciplinary officials slapped a one-match stadium ban on the club.

In accordance with UEFA rules which have been adopted and interpreted by the Italian football federation (FIGC), Milan will now play their next game, against Udinese in a little under a fortnight, behind closed doors.
