Juve U23 Coach banned for blasphemy

Juventus U23 Coach Fabio Pecchia has received a three-match Serie C ban for insulting the referee and using blasphemous phrases.

The former Newcastle and Napoli assistant manager, not to mention Coach of Hellas Verona, completely lost his temper during a victory over Arezzo.

A statement from the Disciplinary Commission confirms Pecchia insulted the referee and used ‘blasphemous phrases’ during his tirade.

In the Italian language, blasphemous phrases represent the worst and most offensive form of swearing.

Juventus U23 have earned only four points in their first four Serie C games of the season.
