Two match penalties for the captain of Roma
Daniile De Rossi, the captain of the team, was punished for two games because of the strike that Gianluca Lapadula suffered in the 1-1 draw of Roma as Genoa’s guest in Serie A on Sunday. In the 69th minute of the game De Rossi hit without a ball in the face of the Lapadula in the penalty area. His referee showed a red card and a penalty kick in favor of Genoa, which LaPadula made for 1: 1.
The Disciplinary Commission of the Italian Football League determined De Rossi’s act as “serious unsportsmanlike behavior.”
Minutes after the match, the Romani captain apologized for his action. He will miss the home match against JAP 2013 and the visit to Kievo.
