Juventus to appeal Bonucci ban

Juventus will appeal against the ban given to Leonardo Bonucci, but not the punishment handed to boss Antonio Conte.

Both were suspended for two League games after taking their protests against match officials too far following the 1-1 draw against Genoa.

The Old Lady were left fuming after the referee opted against awarding them a late penalty at the Juventus Stadium.

The club, according to Sky Sport Italia, have decided to accept Conte’s touchline ban, but they are attempting to get the defender back in action sooner.

Juve face Chievo on Sunday, before entertaining fierce rivals Fiorentina.
