Milan Handed Second Successive Serie A Sanction for Fan Behavior

For the second time in the space of a week, Milan have been handed a fine in successive Serie A clashes.

The Rossoneri faithful pointed lasers at Hellas Verona players and at Antonin Barak in particular, in the club’s last home outing at San Siro, the conclusion of which was a €10,000 fine.

The away encounter against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara garnered the same kind of attention as the Hellas Verona match, for all the wrong reasons, once again, as Rossoneri supporters from the Curva Sud threw flares and firecrackers on the pitch.

According to official sources (via MilanNews), Lega Serie A revealed the Sport Judge’s first batch of fines for matchweek 9 – with Milan being handed a €5000 fine.

The conduct of fans this season has been a headline affair in the league, with racism and improper conduct being at the forefront of supporter issues.

Milan overcame Bologna by a 4-2 scoreline, marking eight wins from first nine league games only for the second time in their history, with 1954/55 being the last time the Rossoneri opened proceedings on such high terms.
