Napoli ban appeal verdicts

Walter Mazzarri’s touchline ban has been revoked on appeal, but Goran Pandev, Andrea Dossena and Juan Camilo Zuniga remain suspended for Napoli.

The bans were inflicted by the Disciplinary Commission after the ill-tempered Italian Super Cup match they lost 4-2 to Juventus in extra time.

Coach Mazzarri has seen his one-match ban removed on appeal and instead transformed into a €20,000 fine.

However, two-match bans for Pandev and Dossena, plus a one-game stop for Zuniga, remain intact.

All three players will therefore miss Sunday’s Serie A opener against Palermo.
