Cagliari not punished for Kean racism

Cagliari will not be charged after the FIGC downplayed the severity of the racial abuse their fans directed at Juventus striker Moise Kean.

Kean was subjected to racist chants from sections of Cagliari support after his late goal during Juve’s 2-0 win at the Sardegna Arena on April 2.

It has taken the FIGC over a month to finally reach a verdict, yet on Tuesday it was announced that the Rossoblu had been spared as the chants had ‘an objectively limited relevance’.

Elsewhere, Inter are fined €10,000 after their fans beamed a laser at Chievo goalkeeper Adrian Semper on Monday, although anti-Napoli chanting went unpunished due to a report of the incident being submitted late.

Torino are ordered to pay €3,500 for starting their match against Sassuolo on Sunday four minutes late, while SPAL must shell out €3,000 after one of their supporters threw a cup of liquid at Napoli shot-stopper Alex Meret.

Finally, Sassuolo’s Mehdi Bourabia, Parma pair Bruno Alves and Luca Rigoni, Chievo’s Nicola Rigoni, Atalanta’s Jose Luis Palomino, Lazio’s Stefan Radu and Genoa’s Cristian Romero will all sit out the next round of Serie A with bans.
