UEFA ends probe into Michy Batshuayi racial abuse claim
UEFA has decided to close the case on Michy Batshuayi's claims that he was racially abused while playing in the Europa League for Borussia Dortmund.
After the 1-1 draw with Serie A club Atalanta, the on-loan Chelsea striker claimed that he heard "monkey noises in the stands."
European football's governing body fined the Italian outfit €34,000 for fireworks, thrown objects and blocked stairways but has decided 'to close the disciplinary proceedings opened for racist or discriminatory behavior.'
The Bundesliga club has also been fined with their penalty at €40,000 for setting off fireworks and throwing objects.
The Belgium international responded to the decision on Twitter:
LOL. Must be my imagination 🤷🏾♂️ https://t.co/50BrKZz6mu— Michy Batshuayi (@mbatshuayi) March 29, 2018
