La società di calcio del Villarreal è stata multata di 12mila euro per la vicenda della banana lanciata verso il calciatore Dani Alves

La multa è stata stabilita dalla Commissione disciplinare della Federazione calcistica spagnola.

(BBC Sport) Villarreal have been fined €12,000 (£9,850) by the Spanish Football Federation after a fan threw a banana at Barcelona defender Dani Alves.

The Brazilian, 30, picked up the banana and took a bite as he prepared to take a corner in the La Liga match between the sides last month.

“We have accepted the €12,000 fine,” a Villarreal spokesman told Reuters.
“The federation were though pleased with the quick and positive action that the club took by identifying the fan.”

Alves’ actions sparked a worldwide social media campaign against racism following the match, which Barcelona won 3-2, at Villarreal’s El Madrigal stadium on 28 April.
Within two days of the incident Villarreal said they had identified the culprit, withdrawing his season ticket and giving him a lifetime ban.

Spanish police then arrested the 26-year-old man, identified by local media as David Campaya Lleo.
