Juventus have banned the supporter who racially abused Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan, anticipating the authorities.
The fan had already been identified after video of him shouting insults at Maignan was circulated on social media.
He was expelled from his local Juventus fan club, the Juventus Club Gaetano Scirea di Castagnaro (Verona), for ‘damaging our image’ with his behaviour.
Now Juventus have announced they’ve banned him from the Allianz Juventus Stadium.

Usually, clubs do not have to take this action, as fans are banned from attending all sporting events when a Daspo order is emitted.
Juventus have opted to anticipate the authorities and ban this supporter themselves.
He has been identified as factory worker from Rovigo and Tuttosport claim he is facing charges of instigating racial hatred.
Meanwhile, Milan have released a new video to promote equity, diversity and inclusion.
We act with one voice to promote equity, diversity and inclusion: #WeRespAct, always! 🔴⚫
