Riccardo Meggiorini’s three-match ban has been confirmed after Novara saw their appeal rejected.
The player received two yellow cards during Novara’s defeat to Genoa at Marassi on November 20.
At the second booking, he hurled abuse at the referee and other officials.
Novara lodged an appeal, but today the FIGC Disciplinary Commission confirmed the three-round ban for Meggiorini.
