Roma and Juventus fined following insulting fan chants

Roma and Juventus have been fined by the sporting judge following insulting chants from some of their fans.

The Giallorossi fans repeatedly called Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic a ‘gypsy’ and made other insulting comments during the 3-1 loss on Thursday. Coach Jose Mourinho attempted to intervene to stop the chants, but the damage was already done.

As announced in an official statement, Roma have been fined €25,000 in total following the sporting judge’s decision. €15,000 of this is due to the insulting chants, with the other €10,000 stemming from throwing of firecrackers and other objects into the opposing fans’ stands.

Juventus were also given a €10,000 fine after some of their fans made anti-Naples chants during the 1-1 draw at the Allianz Stadium on Thursday, something that often happens when the two rivals meet.

The sporting judge also fined Lazio €2000 after a smoke bomb was thrown onto the playing area during the 3-3 draw with Empoli at the Stadio Olimpico.
