Italian club land penalty for racial abuse

The racist taunts aimed at Samuel Eto'o by Cagliari supporters on Sunday have cost the Serie A club €25,000 (£22,000). Cagliari's home clash with Inter Milan was marred by the abuse directed at Cameroonian striker Eto'o, with the chanting reaching such a level that match officials opted to temporarily halt the game just three minutes in. The Sardinian club, who currently sit 16th in the league, have since been fined by the Italian league as a result of the incident. Eto'o enjoyed the last laugh on Sunday, however, scoring the only goal of the encounter to hand Inter a 1-0 win. The 29-year-old, a former Barcelona and Real Madrid player, no longer brings his family to watch him play in Italy due to the racist abuse he receives.
