Roma boss Jose Mourinho has been given a two-match touchline ban after he was sent off during Roma’s 2-2 draw with Verona on Saturday.

Mourinho went onto the pitch to argue with referee Luca Pairetto before kicking the ball into the crowd.

The Italian Football Federation said Mourinho “made serious allegations” against Pairetto, and entered the pitch “with a threatening attitude”.

The Portuguese manager was also fined 20,000 Euros (£16,670).

Mourinho made a telephone gesture towards Pairetto, which Italian media reported was in reference to his father Pierluigi, who was involved in the Italian match-fixing scandal of 2006.
