The Federal Prosecutor reported the case to the Sporting Judge, who has sanctioned the Giallorossi with a suspended sentence of one year.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Franck Kessie were targeted by racist abuse during the Rossoneri’s 2-1 win at the Olimpico and if it happens again, La Lupa will be forced to close the Curva Sud for one game.
The sentence is suspended for one year ‘on the warning that, if a similar violation will be committed during that period, the suspension will be revoked, and the sanction will be added to that imposed for the new violation’.
In addition, coach Jose Mourinho was given a €10,000 fine for his ironic and disrespectful attitude towards referee Fabio Maresca at the end of the match.
The Sporting Judge has fined the Giallorossi coach for having, ‘at the end of the match, near the entrance of the referee’s dressing room, showed an ironic attitude towards the same, uttering disrespectful words’.
