Duo banned for violent conduct

Duo banned for violence


Winger Cerci was shown a straight red card for kicking Juventus defender Paolo De Ceglie during La Viola’s 5-0 home thrashing on Saturday.

"I apologise to all Viola fans," Cerci said.

"I am sorry for my bad reaction to the slap I received, please don’t hold it against me."

Argentina midfielder Bertolo head-butted Gennaro Delvecchio during Sunday's 1-1 draw at Lecce, with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparani claiming the player was provoked but that he will be fined two weeks’ wages.

Cerci is also understood to have been fined by Fiorentina.
