UEFA sanction Atletico Madrid for racism at Man City Champions League clash


Atletico Madrid have been sanctioned and ordered to close a section of their stadium and display a huge anti-racism sign at their Champions League return fictures with Manchester City, UEFA announced on Monday.

European football chiefs said Atletico Madrid fans had shown ‘discriminatory behaviour’ during the first-leg of their quarter-final at Manchester City.

Spanish sports daily Marca ran a video last week of Atletico fans making a Nazi salute during the game.

UEFA have told Atletico they must close a section of at least 5000 seats and place a ‘#NoToRacism’ banner in the gap.

The Spanish champions lost the opener 1-0 on April 5 and host the English giant Manchester City in Madrid in the second leg on April 13.
