RUSSIAN CLUB CSKA Moscow were handed a partial stadium ban by UEFA due to racist abuse of Manchester City’s Yaya Toure in a Champions League match.

In a statement, UEFA said that their disciplinary body had ordered the closure of Sector D of CSKA’s Arena Khimki for the club’s next Champions League game against Germany’s Bayern Munich on November 27.

“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,” UEFA said.
