Inter fined for racist chants
12 Feb, 2013 7:32 PM GMT
Inter Milan have been fined 15,000 euros over racist chants about Mario Balotelli during a Serie A match with Chievo.
Former Manchester City man Balotelli, who previously played for Inter before moving to England in 2010, joined rivals AC Milan during the January transfer window.
He was the subject of offensive chanting by sections of the Inter support during their 3-1 win at San Siro on Sunday.
It is the second high-profile case of racism involving Balotelli since the striker returned to Italy.
Paolo Berlusconi - the brother of AC Milan president Silvio - was filmed using offensive language when referring to the Italy international prior to his debut against Udinese.
Earlier in the season, Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng left the pitch during a friendly with lower league side Pro Patria after being subjected to racist abuse by supporters.
Meanwhile, Juventus were also fined for offensive songs sung about rivals Napoli, who were also ordered to pay the same amount after a laser pen was pointed from the crowd at a referee during a game against Lazio.
