(ANSA) - Rome, July 20 - A disciplinary commission of
European soccer's governing body UEFA on Friday fined Italy and
AC Milan forward Antonio Cassano 15,000 euros for making
"discriminatory" comments on gays during the recent Euro 2012
tournament.
Cassano said he hoped there were no gay players in the
national team after a TV presenter suggested not all players in
the national team were straight.
He also used the derogatory term 'froci' (faggots) to
describe gay people.
Cassano, who helped Italy reach the final of Euro 2012,
apologised afterwards saying that "homophobia is a sentiment
that does not belong to me".
