Snapshot: Milan Fined After Fans Taunt Antonio Cassano With ‘Traitor, Return Your Defibrillator’ Banner

“Cassano. Traitor. Give us back the defibrillator”
AC Milan have been fined after fans unfurled a huge banner during Sunday’s Milan derby demaning that ‘traitor’ Antonio Cassano – who did the unthinkable and left the Rossoneri for the Nerazzurri this summer in a swap deal with Giampaolo Pazzini – give back the defibrillator used to revive him after the striker suffered a mild Transient Ischemic Attack (or ‘mini-stroke’) while at Milan in November of last year.
The reference to Cassano’s heart surgery - of which there were several on show in the terraces during the game - didn’t go down well with the Italian Football Federation, who have fined Milan to the tune of €8,000 for their dimwitted slogans.
Nice one chaps.
