Cagliari escape with no sanctions for fans’ racial abuse of Juventus striker Moise Kean in Serie A clash

The teenager was subject to racist taunts from the crowd during the game when Juve travelled to the Sardinian club for the Serie A clash in April.

He held his arms out after scoring Juve’s second as they won the match 2-0.

The celebration appeared to be in reaction to the chants and he was then subjected to further abuse.

His team-mate Blaise Matuidi threatened to walk off during the match as he was also on the receiving end of abuse.

Serie A released a statement on Tuesday saying it had decided not to sanction Cagliari over the incident.

“The chants, even if they were reprehensible, objectively had a limited relevance to the game, even considering the perception,” the statement read. “The decision is not to apply sanctions to Cagliari.”
