Liga Serie A has issued a €10,000 fine to Inter Milan for chants it called “insulting on the basis of territorial origin.”

The league also fined Inter €4,000 for delaying the kick-off of Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Napoli by five minutes. Napoli was fined €2,500 for their part in the delay, according to Football-Italia.net. The chants reportedly occurred during the first 10 minutes of Sunday’s match.

The fines were among several disciplinary actions taken from matches over the weekend.

Verona was fined €3,000 after their fans threw flares on the pitch and SPAL was fined €2,000 for insulting songs against the referee.

Additionally, Daniele De Rossi was suspended for Roma’s upcoming match at Crotone after he drew his fifth booking of the season. Others suspended were Benevento’s Lorenzo Del Pinto, Sampdoria’s Karol Linetti as well as Federico Peluso and Antonio Ragusa from Sassuolo.
