Yaya Toure: CSKA Moscow punished for racist chants
UEFA has ordered the partial closure of CSKA’s stadium during the club’s next Champions League tie, following racist chanting directed at Manchester City’s Yaya Toure.
The Russian club was charged after Toure complained about the chanting during City’s 2-1 win on 23 October.
Section D of Arena Khimki will be closed when CSKA host reigning champions Bayern Munich on 27 November.
CSKA had denied Toure’s claims that he had been racially abused.
But European football’s governing body charged the club following a hearing in Switzerland by its control and disciplinary body.
A statement read: “The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA.
“The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the pitch and in the stands.”
