Uefa open disciplinary proceedings against CSKA Moscow

The organisation has confirmed they have launched proceedings against the Russian side for the “racist behaviour of their fans” during Wednesday’s clash with Manchester City

Uefa has confirmed they have opened disciplinary proceedings against CSKA Moscow after allegations of racist chanting during the club’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to Manchester City.

Midfielder Yaya Toure complained of racist abuse after the match and called on Uefa to take action against the Russian side.

CSKA Moscow have subsequently denied claims of racial abuse telling Sky Sports News: “There is no subject to discuss. Nothing special happened.”

However, Uefa has now confirmed they have launched disciplinary proceedings into the behaviour of their fans, with the case to be heard at the end of the month.

“Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against CSKA Moskva for racist behaviour of their fans (article 14 of the Uefa disciplinary regulations) and for setting off of fireworks (article 16) at last night’s Champions League group stage match in Moscow against Manchester City,” a statement reads.

“The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body on 30 October.”
