Inter handed another racism ban

Inter have been handed a suspended stand closure after their fans were found guilty of racially abusing Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

The FIGC’s sporting judiciary heard supporters from the Curva Nord ‘chant racist expressions’ towards Kessie in the seventh and 39th minute of Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina at San Siro.

Consequently, the Nerazzurri risk one match with the stand closed, although the punishment will only take effect if their fans commit another instance of racist abuse.

Inter were forced to play two games behind closed doors earlier in the year after their supporters discriminated against Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly on Boxing Day.

Elsewhere, Coach Luciano Spalletti has been given only a warning after he was sent to the stands during his side’s 3-2 win, while Milan have been fined €10,000 after one of their fans threw a potentially-dangerous object onto the pitch.
