Juventus coach, defender banned for two games

Rome: Juventus head coach Antonio Conte and defender Leonardo Bonucci have been banned for two games each in the aftermath of the Genoa row.

The Serie A champions were left furious at the end of the 1-1 draw after they were denied, what they felt, was a clear penalty. Conte and Bonucci both confronted the referee.



Giorgio Chiellini has been banned for one game too after the injured stopper came on to the pitch to argue with officials, Xinhua reports. Bianconeri director general Beppe Marotta, meanwhile, has been suspended from duty until Feb 18.

The Turin giants will face Chievo this weekend and then Fiorentina in Serie A.

Conte and Bonucci have also been fined 10,000 euros each. Juventus, as a club, will have to pay out 50,000 euro.
