Rome, August 20 - Lazio on Tuesday appealed a
soccer judge's closure of its hard-core fans' North Stand in
their Serie A opener against Udinese Sunday because of monkey
chants against Juventus's black players in their 4-0 loss to
Juve in the Super Cup two days ago.
A lawyer for the Roman club said they were seeking an
"emergency" reversal of the ruling, the minimum mandatory
penalty under new anti-racism rules issued in June.
Lazio fans racially abused the Serie A champs' France
midfielder Paul Pogba; Angelo Ogbonna, an Italy defender of
Nigerian descent; and Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah.
Lazio's team included Angolan-born Belgian Under-21
international Luis Pedro Cavanda and Nigeria's Ogenyi Eddy
Onazi.
