Referee reports fascist actions by Real Madrid fans at Osasuna game21 January 2009

Real Madrid are facing a fine after a small group of fans were reported by the referee for making fascist gestures and for fascist chanting during the club's victory against Osasuna on Sunday, 18th January.

Match referee Alfonso Pérez Burrull included the incidents in his report, writing that some supporters behind one goal were waving flags with “extremist or radical symbolism”.

The official wrote that there were “chants making reference to the gas chamber, death to Osasuna and fascists forever” and said that there were also gestures and signs “of a fascist nature”.

Madrid have had trouble in the past with a group of their radical fans belonging to the 'Ultra Sur' and were fined €9,780 following TV pictures which showed some of the crowd barracking black players and making Nazi salutes during the visit of Bayern Leverkusen in the Champions League in 2004.

Santiago Bernabéu was also the setting when the England national football team faced a barrage of racist chanting and monkey noises, also in 2004.
