Juventus fined for ugly Balotelli chants

Juventus have been fined over the ugly chants by fans against Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

Italy's chief of sporting justice Gianpaolo Tosel has fined Juventus £18,000 after fans sang "insulting chants" about Mario Balotelli on Sunday.

During Sunday's match against Udinese sections of the Curva Nord and Curva Sud at the Olimpico sang: "If you jump, Balotelli dies."

While the chants weren't deemed racist as they did not refer to Balotelli's skin, they were classified as insulting and distasteful.
