La Liga: Atletico Madrid faces punishment after fans heckle former player Antoine Griezmann during Barcelona clash
Madrid: Atlético Madrid escaped major punishment Wednesday after their fans made threatening chants against former player Antoine Griezmann during last weekend's Spanish league match against Barcelona.
The Spanish league had denounced the club after some fans chanted “Die Griezmann” in Sunday's match, won by Barcelona at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.
The Spanish soccer federation said it would fine Atlético 301 euros ($333) because the game was disrupted, but it did not cite the chants against Griezmann. The fine was prompted mainly because fans threw objects — including an umbrella — onto the field.
