Serie C club official banned five years for assaulting rival


The vice-president of Italian third tier club Viterbese has been banned for five years for assaulting the president of a rival club before a Serie C match on Wednesday.

Serie C’s disciplinary tribunal said that Arezzo president Giorgio La Cava needed hospital treatment after being kicked and punched by Viterbese’s Luciano Camilli near the players’ tunnel before kickoff in the promotion playoff match.

Camilli pushed La Cava from behind, kicked his legs and then “hit him with extreme violence with a punch to the head”, Serie C said in a statement.

Cava fell to the ground, was helped by first aid officials and taken to hospital for further checks, the statement said. Arezzo won 2-0 to complete a 5-0 aggregate win in the two-leg tie. There was no immediate comment from Viterbese on the incident.
