P aris: Uefa has decided to investigate alleged racist chanting during the Euro 2012 matches between Spain and Italy and Russia vs Czech Republic.
A Spanish fans’ group said some of its supporters abused Manchester City and Italy striker Mario Balotelli.
Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie told reporters he “noticed” racist chants directed at him.
Uefa said that no disciplinary proceedings had been started at this stage.
The Uefa statement added: “Following the provision of new independent information today, regarding the two cases of alleged racist chanting in the Spain-Italy and Russia-Czech Republic matches, Uefa is now conducting further investigations.”
No official complaints have been made to Uefa by Italy or Czech Republic.
The admission by a Spanish fans’ group that some of their supporters racially abused Balotelli during Sunday’s game was sent to Uefa by an anti-racism network.
