Juventus lose closure appeal


Oct 13, 2018-

Italian champions Juventus on Thursday lost their appeal against a one-match closure of their south stand with a further suspended punishment added for racist chanting by fans towards Napoli’s Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly. The Italian FA’s appeals court ruled that the club’s south stand will be closed for Juventus’s game against Genoa on October 20 in the Allianz Stadium, and again conditionally for the following home game against Cagliari on November 3, depending on fans’ behav iour. Italian league observers reported hearing Koulibaly targeted by the racist abuse in the game on September 29 which hosts Juventus won 3-1. (AFP)
