JUVE SHOCKER: Kids cost club fine for abusing Udinese keeper Brkic

Juventus have been fined €5,000 over abuse from junior fans aimed towards Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic during Sunday's match.

Over 12,000 children under the age of 13 filled the Juventus Stadium for the 1-0 win in place of banned ultras - but amazingly, the result was still the same.

The 'fans' targeted Brkic, who made a number of fine saves throughout the game before Fernando Llorente scored the winner in stoppage time to hand Juve a 1-0 triumph.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "Juventus have been fined 5,000 euros for their very young supporters having repeatedly insulted a player of a rival team."
