Juventus appeal Allegri ban

Juventus will appeal Coach Massimiliano Allegri’s touchline ban, the club has confirmed.

The Bianconeri tactician was given a one match ban after insulting match officials following his side’s 1-1 draw with Sampdoria on Sunday.

However, the Serie A leaders have indicated that they will appeal against the ban.

“Juventus are to lodge an urgent appeal against the one-match touchline ban handed to Massimiliano Allegri during Sunday’s home game against Sampdoria,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

“Leonardo Bonucci will miss out on the clash with Cagliari after triggering an automatic one-match ban with the yellow card he picked up at the weekend.”
