AC Milan fined over Zanetti chants

The Rossoneri have been punished for their supporters' mocking chants aimed at the recently injured Inter captain during Sunday's 4-1 Serie A victory against Catania
AC Milan have been handed an €8,000 (£6,750) fine for their fans' behaviour in the 4-2 win over Catania as the Rossoneri faithful launched chants mocking Inter skipper Javier Zanetti and insulted police forces.

The Argentine defender sustained a serious Achilles tendon injury in the Nerazzurri's loss against Palermo on Sunday  and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Milan supporters showed little sympathy for the Inter icon, though, chanting: "Javier Zanetti, jump with us" during their match against Catania later that day, resulting in a fine from the league's governing body, Lega Serie A.

"Milan are fined €8,000 as their supporters launched abusive chants directed at a player of another club and insulted police forces during the match," an official statement read.

Inter initially feared that Zanetti could be forced to retire due to the injury but the 39-year-old has insisted that he will not hang up his boots.
