Garcia and Holebas banned

Sporting judge Gianpaolo Tosel has banned Roma manager Rudi Garcia for two matches and Jose Holebas for one match due to their actions in the Giallorossi’s match against Genoa.

Garcia’s ban is due to “aggressive behavior and intimidation against a steward” while Holebas’ is due to flashing Genoa fans his middle finger after being whistled when walking off the pitch after the match. Genoa’s Diego Perotti also received a ban (3 matches) after television replays showed the Argentine kick Jose Holebas in the back of the leg.
