Inter could receive punishment from UEFA after their fans racially abused two Newcastle players.

Defenders Titus Bramble and Olivier Bernard were targeted by Internazionale supporters during last nights 2-2 draw in the San Siro.

Further trouble could also ensue after a lit flare was thrown into the Newcastle supporters’ section. But Newcastle manager Bobby Robson was oblivious to the events.

“‘I must admit I wasn’t too aware of anything like that, as I was absorbed in the game,” he said.

UEFA is trying to clampdown on racism in football. A conference was held in London only last week to discuss various courses of action. Black players from Arsenal, Liverpool, Fulham and Ipswich have all been subjected to abuse in European games this season And the Slovakian FA was fined and made to play a game behind closed doors following racist taunts in England’s game against Slovakia last year.

Possible penalties UEFA could impose include banning supporters from the San Siro for a number of games.
