Juventus fined 30,000 euros following Boateng incident

The Ghanaian was racially abused by Bianconeri supporters on Sunday and the Italian authorities have moved quickly to punish the club.
Juventus have been fined 30,000 euros after AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng was the victim of racist abuse in Sunday's clash between the two sides.

The Rossoneri midfielder had been targeted by Bianconeri supporters during the warm-up and as a result the Serie A disciplinary committee has moved quickly to punish the club.

Juve, meanwhile, has released an anti-racism statement regarding the incident, stressing its disgust at the actions of a minority of its fans.

"Juventus Football Club reminds its fans and the media that it is heavily involved in projects dedicated to integration and is against any form of racism or discrimination," a statement on their official website read. "Such behavior does not represent the position of the club, its millions of fans or even the vast majority of spectators at Juventus Stadium, which is something unique in Italian football.

"This statement is not in any way intended to contest the decision of the sporting judge."
