REGGIO EMILIA, Italy -- Sassuolo has been fined by the Italian football league for racially abusing AC Milan midfielder Kevin Constant despite a local police report stating otherwise.

Sassuolo was fined 30,000 euros ($40,000) on Thursday for "racially discriminatory chants" during a friendly last month.

Constant was also fined the same amount for kicking the ball into the stands and walking off the field after hearing what he called racist chanting from a section of Sassuolo fans as he was taking a thrown in.

Police officers who were sitting nearby say the fans were "encouraging the player Constant not to waste time over a throw-in," and were shouting phrases such as "Come on, move it! ... Get a move on! ... Come on, get a move on you sausage! and Get a nose job!"
