Juventus have been fined 5000 euros by the Italian Football League after a group of young supporters repeatedly insulted Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic during Sunday's match.

A total of 12,000 children under 13 filled the Juventus stadium at the weekend to watch the Serie A game against Udinese.

The club's initiative, which was applauded by many, prevented Sunday's game from being played behind closed doors.

Juve had been handed a stadium closure for that match as punishment for their fans' geographically discriminatory chants towards Napoli supporters in last month's game.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "Juventus have been fined 5000 euros for their very young supporters having repeatedly insulted a player of a rival team."

Brkic made a number of fine saves throughout the game before Fernando Llorente scored the winner in stoppage time to hand Juve a 1-0 triumph.

The win lifted Juve three points clear at the top of Serie A.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
