Pro Vercelli staff banned for attack

A member of Serie B side Pro Vercelli’s coaching staff has been banned after punching Brescia players and staff members “several times.”

The incident occurred during the final minutes of the Serie B game on February 10 at the Stadio Silvio Piola.

Pro Vercelli staff member Giorgio Bertolone punched Brescia kit man Mauro Oro in the face “several times, voluntarily and violently.”

A Brescia player warming up on the touchline tried to intervene and was also struck by Bertolone.

The Pro Vercelli employee has been banned until June 30.
