Capello blow to Roma (updated)
MILAN, April 23 (AFP)
AS Roma's dwindling hopes of successfully defending their title took a new blow Tuesday when their coach Fabio Capello was banned from the touchline for Sunday's home match with Chievo.
Capello was banned for entering the field of play and showing his disapproval of refereeing decisions during Sunday's 0-0 draw with AC Milan at the San Siro, the National Professional League (LNP) disciplinary panel announced.
Roma will also be denied the presence of French international defender Vincent Candela who was one of seven Serie A players handed a one-match ban at the same hearing.
Among the other suspended players was Juventus midfielder Antonio Conte, who will miss his club's all important clash with Brescia.
With two games to play Roma are two points behind leaders Inter Milan and one behind second-placed Juventus in a three-way battle for the title.

Serie A Suspensions: Capello pays for rage Tuesday 23 April, 2002



Seven players and a Coach have been banned from taking part in this week’s Serie A ties.


Roma boss Fabio Capello was punished for his violent outburst that met the final whistle of their 0-0 draw at Milan.

The tactician was particularly upset that the referee had ended the game before his team was able to take a free kick in a favourable position.


The Disciplinary Commission ruled that Capello had “run onto the field exhibiting clear dissent and shouting protests, some of which were insulting, at the referee.”


This is hardly the first time that Capello has made his dissatisfaction with the final whistle clear. An identical situation occurred during Roma’s 1-1 draw at Udine on Jan 20.


“Capello continued this behaviour when entering the players’ tunnel,” continued the report, “and the ban was decided taking into account previous offences of this nature.”


Roma will also be without winger Vincent Candela, while title-chasing Juventus must seat Antonio Conte in the stands.


One match ban:


Candela (Roma), Conte (Juventus), Stam (Lazio), Andersson (Venezia), Valtolina (Venezia), Petruzzi (Brescia), Cannavaro (Parma).

Capello has a bad temper, sometimes is hilarious, well maybe that's what needed at Roma, but he should control that temper, it can hurt us..

Capello fury at 'incomprehensible' touchline ban

Tuesday 23rd April 2002

Roma boss Fabio Capello claims he is being picked on by the Italian FA after receiving a touchline ban for berating referee Gianluca Paparesta at the end of Sunday's goalless draw with AC Milan.

The disciplinary committee claimed on Tuesday that Capello had sworn at Paparesta, who blew for full-time before Roma could take a free-kick on the edge of the Milan area.

"He used bad language," confirmed an official spokesman.

But Capello insisted the punishment was harsh. "I protested against the referee's decision," he admitted. "But I really don't understand how I could have offended the referee.

"I can only say that in Italy many coaches and players contest refereeing decisions, but it is me that always seems to be banned."

Capello must now watch this weekend's Chievo game from the stands.

This is the fourth ban he has received this season. The former Milan boss was found guilty of the same crime when Roma played Perugia in October and Torino in January.

He was also handed a one-match ban for his involvement in a post-match fracas between Galatasaray and Roma players at the Stadio Olimpico in March.

Roma lie in third place in Serie A, trailing leaders Internazionale by only two points.
