Atalanta have been fined €25,000 after their fans threw objects at Lazio goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

As reported by Italian newspaper Tuttosport yesterday, the Bergamo-based club received the fine because their fans threw a variety of small objects at the Spanish goalkeeper during the dying minutes of their recent 2-2 draw against the Biancocelesti.

Reina was struck on the back of the head by a thrown coin during the incident. The Lazio goalkeeper was also booked by referee Marco Guida during this situation due to ‘time wasting’.

The penalty to Atalanta was not too severe because the club immediately identified and banned the culprits, using cameras inside the stadium to help identify the offending fans.
