Conte suspended for two games

Inter coach Antonio Conte, who clashed with referee Fabio Maresca, has been banned for two games and fined €20,000 by the the Disciplinary Commission.

The Nerazzurri coach has been punished for the incident that took place at the end of Udinese-Inter last weekend, when he was sent off by Maresca.

Team manager Lele Oriali has been fined €5,000 for his behaviour.

The report from the sporting judge says that Conte has been suspended for ‘having continued to protest vehemently, by loudly uttering disrespectful phrases towards the referee that continued even after the sending off and before leaving the pitch’.

After the match, 'in the tunnel that leads to the dressing rooms, he confronted the referee himself with a threatening and offensive expression’.

Oriali has been fined too for 'reiterating the protests even after the warning was given, reached the referee in the middle of the pitch and shouted disrespectful sentences’.
