Maurizio Sarri faces a two-match suspension

Tue 14 September 2021 | 17:01

Lazio’s manager Maurizio Sarri has been suspended for two games.

Lazio’s

head coach

Maurizio Sarri

was sent off in his side’s defeat to

Milan

last weekend following his reaction to

Alexis Saelemaekers’

moves in the stoppage time, and it wasn’t all of the former Napoli and Juventus manager’s punishment as he has been suspended for his side’s next two games, but the two-game suspension was because of his reaction to the red card that he received. 

Lazio will face

Cagliari

and then

Torino

in the Serie A in their head coach’s suspension, and they can be in trouble considering their opponents in their next two games.

“Disqualification for two matches for having, at the end of the match, on the playing field, sought a verbal confrontation with a player of the opposing team,”

the Sporting Judge wrote in a statement.

“Assuming an intimidating attitude and using threatening words against him; as well as after the sending off, for having challenged the referee’s decision by uttering blasphemous expressions in the tunnel leading to the dressing rooms.”

The experienced head coach will be back in time for his side’s important clash against Roma on September 26, which is one the most important games for Napoli fans as they are always excited for the derby from weeks before the kick-off.
