Danilo Cataldi was given a one-match suspension by the Serie A sporting judge due to his behaviour in Lazio’s loss to Napoli on the weekend.
The 2-1 defeat was incredibly frustrating for Maurizio Sarri’s side, who failed to take advantage of their early goal. Luciano Spalletti’s side seemed to outclass Lazio on the pitch, highlighting the need for further work ahead of a long season.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Cataldi was given a one-match ban by the Serie A sporting judge for his heated protests towards the officials during Lazio’s loss to Napoli and his disruptive behaviour in front of the locker room after the full-time whistle, where he again expressed his anger at the decisions and uttered a blasphemous expression.
Lazio were also fined €10,000 due to the territorial discrimination chants towards the Napoli fans, heard three times by the staff of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office.
Cataldi is set to miss the upcoming clash against Hellas Verona, and even with an appeal would likely be sidelined regardless.
