Sarri's Appeal Has Been Rejected By FIGC

Biancoceleste in Thursday's match will not be able to count on Maurizio Sarri’s contribution to the bench.  At the head of the team, there will still be his assistant, Giovanni Martusciello.

The Italian Football Federation, FIGC has rejected Lazio's appeal to reduce Maurizio Sarri's penalty following his red card against AC Milan.

The Tuscan coach was sent off in the Milan-Lazio final due to an argument with Saelemaekers and referee Chiffi.  The disqualification was for two matches but Lazio had filed an appeal to have at least one day removed.  However, the appeal was rejected.

"The First Section of the National Court of Sport presided over by Carmine Volpe rejects Lazio's complaint against the two-match disqualification sanction imposed by the Judge of Sport on Maurizio Sarri following his red card at Milan v Lazio, a match played in the last 12 September and valid for the 3rd day of the Serie A championship." The FIGC said in a statement.

Sarri, however, will return to the bench for this weekend's Derby Della Capitale, when Lazio host Roma at the Olimpico on a matchday 6.
