Lazio to Appeal Coach Maurizio Sarri’s Two-Game Suspension

Lazio will appeal against the Sporting Judge’s decision to ban coach Maurizio Sarri for two games.

As reported by Italian media outlet yesterday, the 62-year-old Italian coach was given a red card at the end of the 2-0 loss to AC Milan on Sunday evening, following a heated altercation with Rossoneri winger Samu Castillejo.

This altercation is why Sarri received one of the game bans, with the second game ban coming from blasphemous expressions that were uttered whilst he walked down the tunnel toward the dressing room.

Lazio are not impressed with this punishment and will appeal against the decision, which would force Sarri to miss the next two games against Cagliari and Torino.

Updates are expected in the coming hours and days, with the Biancocelesti’s league match against the Rossoblu coming on Sunday evening.

Should Sarri’s ban be upheld, then assistant coach Giovanni Martusciello would take over the bench for the matches, leading the squad in his place.
