Stramaccioni appeal successful

Inter Milan head coach Andrea Stramaccioni will return to the
bench on Monday night after successfully appealing against a
one-match touchline ban.

The Nerazzurri boss was initially suspended from Monday’s trip
to Parma for questioning referee Piero Giacomelli’s decision to
award a late penalty in a 2-2 draw with Cagliari.

A statement published on the Italian Football Federation’s
official website today confirmed that Stramaccioni would pay a fine
of 10,000 euros instead.

However, Inter striker Antonio Cassano was given a two-match
suspension for verbally abusing match officials and that punishment
has been upheld.

The former Roma player will therefore miss both the trip to the
Stadio Ennio Tardini and Palermo’s visit to Milan on December
2.
