The discount to the Roma coach came after the hearing at the Federal Court. In case of postponement of the match against Samp, the coach would skip Milan
ROME - No Sampdoria for Paulo Fonseca, but a day's discount. The Portuguese coach was heard this morning by the judges of the Federal Court of Appeal & nbsp; about the double yellow card, then expulsion, in the post-match of Rome-Cagliari. Thirty minutes of hearing for the Portuguese, accompanied by the lawyer Antonio Conte and the sports secretary Leo Longo: & nbsp; Rome's request has been accepted in half, the technician will have to go to the stands in the match against Sampdoria while he can instead sit regularly at the his place in the home game against Milan. & Nbsp;
If Sampdoria-Roma were postponed, Fonseca would face the disqualification against Milan. & Nbsp; If instead he started the game against Sampdoria and then was suspended, the coach would continue to serve the disqualification against the Ligurians.
This is the FIGC statement: "The Appeal Court of Appeal in today's meeting partially accepted the appeal filed by AS Roma, reducing the disqualification for the Fonseca coach from two to one day and confirming the fine of € 20,000.00. The Court Sportiva therefore applied the principle of automatic disqualification for the coach expelled during the match, as was sanctioned last Tuesday by the sentence of the Federal Court of Appeal ".

The lawyer Conte asked to remove both days of disqualification from the technician, but the Federal Court only partially accepted the request.
