Juric, though, insisted there was no racist element to any abuse directed towards Balotelli by the home supporters. "No, that's not how you go about it", Infantino said in an interview with Sky Italia.
"In front of your children, wives, relatives, parents, friends and acquaintances.... shame".
Chants of support for Balotelli from large parts of the crowd were heard after the incident. The Brescia player picked the ball up and kicked it to row Z, where the "tifosis" were. Finally, as he was heading to the tunnel, his teammates convinced him to keep playing at the same time as the rest of the stadium chanted his name. "Racists are just ignorant". A lot of provocation, but I heard nothing racist.
Later Sunday, Brescia said they had sacked their 49-year-old coach Eugenio Corini.
I only heard teasing, nothing else.
Corini was later fired by the club, which has struggled this season and is near the bottom of Serie A. No new manager was immediately announced.
Front-runners Juventus (29) won 1-0 against Torino on Saturday to stay one point ahead of Inter Milan, who beat Bologna 2-1.
Verona president Maurizio Setti backed up Juric's comments, saying the club's fans were "absolutely not racist".
"I apologized to him if someone might have said something", Setti said.
Elsewhere surprise package Cagliari moved up to fifth after winning 2-0 at Atalanta, who are the league's leading scorers but drew a blank after the sending off of playmaker Josip Ilicic.
It's Cagliari's best start since winning its only Serie A title in 1970.
The incident could have boomeranged had the referee not stopped the game after an announcement was made through public tannoy system.
Ciro Immobile scored his 100th goal for Lazio in all competitions and Joaquin Correa got the victor after an own-goal by Bastos.
Udinese won 3-1 at Genoa under interim coach Luca Gatti, who took over when Igor Tudor was sacked Friday after the northeastern club conceded 11 goals in its previous two games.
