Lazio vow to identify, take action against fans over racist chants
Lazio have been charged by UEFA over alleged racist behaviour which could result in the Italian club having sections of their stadium closed.
“Lazio will defend its reputation and tradition, the club announces that it has immediately activated the initiatives aimed at identifying those responsible and will rigorously apply the code of ethics to remove those responsible from the stadium,” the club said in a statement.
Lazio added that the club would “join any legal action taken against those who, following the investigation with police, are found to be responsible”.
UEFA will hand down their verdict on October 17.
