Russian football club CSKA Moscow have been punished after some of their fans chanted racist abuse at Manchester City player Yaya Toure. UEFA have banned the supporters from the next chapions leauge tie. The russian club has had a fine due to the fact that Yaya Toure complained about the racial abuse during the match against Manchester city on the 23rd of October 2013. CSKA Moscow has denied the fact but UEFA has kept their decision after a rumour in Switzerland. They said:
“The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the pitch and in the stands.” Earlier this year, in May, UEFA decided that there would be a full stadium closure, along with a fine of 50,000 euros (£42,800)!
