Palermo coach slammed ref, insulted assistant

Soccer: Gattuso banned for one game

Milano, August 20 - New Palermo manager Gennaro Gattuso was banned for one game Tuesday for dissent during the Sicilian outfit's 1-0 Italian Cup loss to Hellas Verona Saturday. A sporting judge said the fiery former Rangers, AC Milan and Italy midfield spoiler, who took over at newly relegated Serie B club Palermo after a brief stint as player-coach for Swiss side Sion, had "blatantly" contested the referee, insulted an assistant and continued his tirade in the tunnel. The 35-year-old Calabrian will miss Palermo's outing to Modena Saturday, the first match in their campaign to get straight back to the top flight.
