Montella ban reduced on appeal

Vincenzo Montella’s two-match touchline ban has been reduced to one on appeal, but he will miss Fiorentina’s showdown with Genoa.

It kicks off on Sunday at 19.30 UK time (18.30 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Coach was punished for insulting the referee and also punching an advertising board after the 1-0 defeat to Parma, unaware that there was a steward standing behind it.

Today, Montella’s appeal against the two-match ban was partially successful, reduced to one game with €10,000 fine.

It still means he’ll be in the stands for this weekend’s final clash of the season, where Fiorentina and Genoa risk relegation.
