Antonio Conte handed two-match touchline ban

Antonio Conte handed two-match touchline ban

Serie A giants Inter Milan will be without manager Antonio Conte on the touchline for their next two matches.

The Italian had a clash with referee Fabio Maresca in their draw against Udinese last weekend after complaining about the time added on stoppage time for the game.

The move means that the former Juventus manager will be on the stands when his team takes on Benevento and Fiorentina.

According to Gazetta dello Sport, Conte said to the referee: “It’s always you Maresca. Always you. Even with VAR.”

The manager will however be on the touchline when Inter takes on arch-rivals AC Milan in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday night with his assistant Cristian Stellini set to lead the team in their next two league games.
