Atletico fined by UEFA for racist abuse

Atletico Madrid have been fined 10,000 euros by UEFA and had their youth stadium partially closed after racist abuse was aimed at Manchester City players during a recent UEFA Youth League game.

Manchester City youth players including Andy Cole's son Devante, 18, were reported to have been racially abused during the match played on Feb. 26 at the Estadio Cerro del Espino -- Atletico’s suburban Madrid training ground.

UEFA confirmed that it was handing out the punishment in a short statement released on Thursday.

“Club Atletico de Madrid Youth were charged for improper conduct of the team and racist behaviour of their supporters,” the statement said. “[The punishment is a] partial stadium closure at the next UEFA Youth League home match of Club Atletico de Madrid Youth and a fine of 10,000 euros.” 

This not the first such incident involving Atletico supporters in recent months, with Real Madrid left-back Marcelo suffering similar abuse after a Copa del Rey game at the Santiago Bernabeu in early February.

Although Marcelo himself spoke out about his disappointment at having to put up with such "monkey noises," the Spanish football authorities decided against taking any action in that case.
