Roma Coach Paulo Fonseca has received a two-game touchline ban in Serie A after insulting the referee.
The incident occurred after the 1-1 draw with Cagliari, which saw Nikola Kalinic’s stoppage-time winner disallowed for a push.
Fonseca and his players reacted furiously, screaming into the face of referee Davide Massa after the final whistle.
The Lega Serie A have now handed Fonseca a two-game touchline ban.
Roma were also fined €15,000 for a member of the fitness staff – who was not qualified to be on the bench at all – who sarcastically applauded in Massa’s face with an ‘aggressive attitude.’
Udinese Coach Igor Tudor has been given a one-match suspension for his dismissal.
Meanwhile, Atalanta have been fined €10,000 after some individual racist insults were aimed at Fiorentina winger Henrique Dalbert by some fans.
Genoa creative midfielder Riccardo Saponara is suspended for one game and fined €10,000 after he was sent off from the bench for insulting the officials with a ‘very loud blasphemous phrase.’
Davide Biraschi (Genoa), Gabriel Strefezza (Parma), Davide Calabria (Milan), Samu Castillejo (Milan), Gary Medel (Bologna), Lucas Leiva (Lazio) and Cristian Romero (Genoa), were also given one-match bans.
