Di Michele: 'Justice was done'

David Di Michele feels “justice was done” after his three-match ban was wiped out on appeal, so he can face Napoli today.

The Lecce star had been suspended for effectively the rest of the season when video evidence suggested he struck Chievo defender Bostjan Cesar.

However, the club successfully appealed that the footage did not prove there was contact between the players.

“I am happy, because justice was done,” said Di Michele. “I did not strike Cesar and that's why I was so stunned by the original ban.

“I found this accusation absolutely unfair and lacking all foundation.

“These have been difficult days for me, but now we must immediately turn over a new leaf and concentrate on Napoli.

“I came out to join my teammates in the pre-match training camp and will be at the Coach's disposal for the final rush.”
