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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
