The Italian Serie A disciplinary commission has fined Hellas Verona the sum of €12,000, for racial abuse hauled at Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen by their fans.

The 23-year-old, who kept his cool throughout the game that Napoli eventually won 5-2,  however, had the last laugh after taunting the Verona fans on scoring his side’s second goal.

Osimhen also assisted the fifth, laying on for teammate Matteo Politano to poke home.

The Nigerian mocked the fans by pretending to cry into the camera as he celebrated his goal with his teammates.

And now an Italian publication, el grafico, reports that the league’s disciplinary commission found the home side guilty and has hit them with a fine.

“Hellas Verona was fined €12,000 for considering that it allowed its fans to carry out racist chants against the player Victor Osimhen, from Napoli, during the match between the two teams for the first date of Serie A of Italian football.

“After the first day of Serie A 2022/23, an investigation into Hellas Verona-Naples was opened with the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, which considers it necessary to clarify and identify those responsible for the first racial discrimination choirs against a Napoli player.”
