The Appeals Committee of the Russian Football Union has upheld the disqualification of the head coach of Spartak Moscow, Domenico Tedesco, according to the RFU press service.
Recall that the team’s mentor was disqualified for three matches and fined 50 thousand rubles for an insulting gesture towards an opponent. The incident took place during the RPL round 18 match against Sochi, which took place on 12 December.
It is known that due to the disqualification, Tedesco must miss the matches of Spartak against Rubin (February 28), Krasnodar (March 7) and Dynamo (March 13).
During a conversation with TASS correspondents, the head of the public relations department of the Moscow club Anton Fetisov expressed regret that the appeal committee did not accept Spartak’s arguments and upheld the head coach’s disqualification.
“We are confident that in such a situation the team will rally around the coach even more and will fight for him,” he said.
Earlier, the former coach of Spartak Massimo Carrera commented on his move to the Italian third division club Bari.
