Croatia fined less for racism than Bendtner is for flashing pants

S slammed Uefa last night after European football’s governing body fined Croatia £64,500 for racial abuse just a day after issuing Denmark’s Nicklas Bendtner with a £80,000 penalty and a one-match ban for showing his underwear.

Croatia were punished after fans made monkey chants towards Italy striker Mario Balotelli during a Euro 2012 group game, while Bendtner was rapped for exposing pants bearing the name of a well known bookmaker as he celebrated a goal.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany wrote on Twitter: “Uefa might need to review their order of priorities, don’t you think?”
