The FIGC has rejected Lazio’s request to reduce Maurizio Sarri’s ban following his red card against Milan. After the FIGC denied Lazio’s appeal, among related news in football today, Sarri will face suspension for two more games.
Maurizio Sarri did not coach his team from just off the pitch in the 2-2 draw with Cagliari last weekend.
And now, he will forcibly have to sit out his Lazio team’s football match against Torino on Thursday as well.
This is because the FIGC denied Lazio’s appeal against a two-game suspension on their new head coach (football transfer news).
Football Today – Sarri Will Face Suspension for Two More Games
The coach was fired after reacting, a bit aggressively, to Milan winger Alexis Saelemaekers’ showboating in the loss to Milan.
But, in protest to a subsequent ban on him, he filed a complaint with the FIGC.
Sarri will be back in charge for the Derby della Capitale this weekend. That is when Lazio faces Roma at the Olimpico in the sixth round of fixtures.
However, he cannot return to the two Lazio games before that.
“The First Section of the National Sports Court chaired by Carmine Volpe rejected Lazio’s complaint against the two-game disqualification sanction imposed by the Sports Judge on Maurizio Sarri after the sending off in Milan vs. Lazio,” the FIGC said in a statement.
