Rather laughably, Juventus have been fined today after a stand full of schoolchildren yelled a naughty word at Udinese keeper Zeljko Brkic during the recent game between the two sides at Juve’s eponymous stadium.
For reasons that are beyond our comprehension, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) disciplinary committee have deemed a fine to the tune of €5,000 to be sufficient punishment after the 12,000 kids who were let into the curva yelled ‘Oooooh MERDA!’ (i.e, ‘Oooooh SH*T!’) in unison when Brkic took a few goal-kicks midway through the game.
According to Gazzetta, the FIGC have seen fit to charge and fine Juve after their young supporters “repeatedly turned on a member of the opposing team with an insulting chorus.”
Can you bloody Adam and Eve it?
