Frey ban revoked, Amauri's cut

Chievo defender Nicolas Frey’s three-match ban has been quashed on appeal and Amauri’s cut to two.

Frey was handed the three-game suspension using video evidence when he was caught on camera kicking out at Mario Balotelli after a tussle.

However, the Disciplinary Commission accepted the theory put forward by the Chievo lawyers that video evidence was inadmissible in this case.

The club had argued Frey’s kick was a natural reaction to the pain of Balotelli accidentally standing on his crotch.

It means Frey will be available for today’s 17.00 UK time kick-off against Verona.

Meanwhile, Parma striker Amauri has seen his three-match ban reduced to two on appeal for jumping with his elbow up against Juventus.
