UEFA sanctioned Atletico for racism at Man City UCL clash

Atletico Madrid have been ordered to close part of their stadium and display a huge anti-racism sign at their Champions League return match with Manchester City, Uefa announced on Monday.

European football chiefs said Atletico Madrid fans had shown ‘discriminatory behaviour’ during the first leg of their quarterfinal at Manchester City.

Spanish sports daily Marca ran a video last week of Atletico fans making a Nazi salute during the game.

Uefa have told Atletico they must close a section of at least 5000 seats and place a ‘#NoToRacism’ banner in the gap.

The Spanish champions lost the opener 1-0 on 5 April and host City in Madrid in the second leg on 13 April.
