Jose Mourinho, Luciano Spalletti, Simone Inzaghi and Gian Piero Gasperini are all given touchline bans after their red cards, while Roma face punishment for racist chants.

The coaches were all sent off for dissent during the past weekend’s Serie A matches.

Roma boss Mourinho, Inter coach Inzaghi and Atalanta’s Gasperini were all dismissed during their games, while Spalletti saw red after the final whistle of Napoli’s 0-0 draw away to Roma.

Spalletti insisted his applause towards the referee was meant as a compliment rather than sarcastically, but his explanation was not accepted by the disciplinary commission.

In fact, Spalletti and Gasperini were both also fined €5,000 for their outbursts.

They will all be suspended for the midweek Serie A Week 10 fixtures.

Roma were fined €10,000 for their fans making ‘territorial discrimination’ chants against the city of Naples.

Further investigation has been opened into another racist chant aimed specifically at Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

2 thought on “Mourinho, Inzaghi, Spalletti, Gasperini suspended”
  1. Roma was fined for “territorial discrimination” but Lazio hasn’t been punished at all for racist chants against the black players – twice! Bravo, la Liga Serie A, always picking the easy target.

  2. Just the fact that the bird trainer for Lazio made a fascist salute – there’s a video of that ch0de exclaiming “Duce! Duce!” (a reference to Mussolini) itself warrants a multimatch ban for Lazio and a fine of min. €100,000

    But, hey, let’s ignore these blatant fascist signs and micro-manage episodes from others.
