ITALIAN football today hit a shocking low after Mario Balotelli was fined — following HIS race-hate hell. The ex-Manchester City star was the victim of horrific racial abuse during Sunday’s Milan derby. Yet Serie A chiefs have hit BALOTELLI in the pocket for confronting Inter racists after the final whistle. AC Milan’s Italy international was fined £8,600 for a “vulgar gesture” following the San Siro clash, which ended 1-1. Inter were also fined £43,200 for their fans’ vile abuse, while AC Milan copped an £8,600 penalty for unveiling “insulting banners”. Last month, Inter were forced to pay £13,200 when their ultras aimed racist chants at Balotelli during a match against Chievo. Italian football had vowed to clean up its act earlier this season after former Tottenham and Portsmouth star Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off during an AC Milan friendly due to racist abuse.[TheSun]
