Atletico Madrid cops UEFA fine for Man City abuse

UEFA have fined Atletico Madrid €10,000 (£8,270) after fans racially abused a Manchester City player last month.

City's Devante Cole, son of former Manchester United star Andy, was abused when playing in the elite development squad at Atletico's Estadio Cerro del Espino reserve ground in late February.

UEFA has found that the behaviour of the Atletico supporters has forced them to charge the club with 'improper conduct of the team and racist behaviour of their supporters'.

Additionally, UEFA have forced a partial stadium lockout of Atletico's next UEFA Youth League home match as well as the aforementioned fine.
