Napoli bans carry on to Serie A

Napoli’s rage about the Super Cup is also because Walter Mazzarri, Goran Pandev and Juan Camilo Zuniga will be suspended against Palermo.

The Partenopei were furious after today’s 4-2 defeat to Juventus in Beijing, boycotting the presentation of the trophy.

They saw Pandev receive a straight red card for dissent, Zuniga got two yellows and Coach Mazzarri was dismissed for his protests before the game went to extra time.

Because the Italian Super Cup is a Lega Serie A-organised encounter, the red cards will therefore move on to the Serie A matches.

It means for Napoli’s opening Serie A fixture against Palermo on the weekend of August 25, they will have Pandev, Zuniga and Mazzarri suspended.
