Schalke have been fined €50,000 for racist chants their fans made during last week's German Cup win against Hertha Berlin, the German Football Association (DFB) ruled on Tuesday.

Hertha player Jordan Torunarigha said he was targeted by Schalke fans repeatedly during the game.

The DFB said the player was racially abused in the 85th minute from a group of Hertha supporters.

Torunarigha was then sent off in extra time for a second bookable offence, throwing down a water crate on the sideline.

Hertha Berlin defender Jordan Torunarigha was sent off for an emotional reaction in the DFB-Pokal defeat at Schalke on Tuesday only minutes after club officials informed the referee of racial slurs against the 22-year-old.

Schalke bounced back from a two-goal deficit to reach the German cup quarterfinals in extra time with a 3-2 win against Hertha. But the victory was overshadowed by a racist incident in the stands of the Veltins Arena.
