UEFA close case against Atalanta over Michy Batshuayi

UEFA close case against Atalanta over Michy Batshuayi”

Michy Batshuayi has alleged that Atlanta fans hurled racist chants against him.

The Borussia Dortmund striker, on loan at the club from Chelsea, accused Atalanta fans of racially abusing him during last month's Europa League tie.

Batshuayi reacted angrily following news of UEFA dropping the charges emerging.

The forward took to social media after the Europa League game at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio-Emilia, claiming he had been the subject of racist 'monkey noises'.

"The CEDB (control, ethics and disciplinary body) has decided.to close the disciplinary proceedings opened for racist or discriminatory behaviour", UEFA said in a statement. There have been several incidents of racism at matches in Italy this season. Batshuayi tweeted on Thursday.

He added: "It's just monkey noise who cares?"

Following last month's game, Atalanta were also charged by Uefa for setting off fireworks, throwing objects and blocking stairways at the stadium, while Dortmund were charged with the setting-off of fireworks and throwing of objects.

Atalanta were fined 34,000 euros (£30,000) and Dortmund 40,000 (£35,000) for crowd disturbances during the Europa League clash in Italy.
