Zaniolo could face longer suspension after Roma-Genoa

Andy Mattioli

Nicolo Zaniolo is officially suspended for Roma’s upcoming league match against Sassuolo after receiving a straight red card from referee Abisso in Roma-Genoa.

The youngster – who reportedly kept asking the referee in an agitated tone What the f*** are you blowing the whistle for? – may face a longer suspension.

According to Il Tempo, Zaniolo’s repeated shouting at the referee even after the obtained red card could further aggravate the offense and lead the Lega Serie A to extend his suspension.

More developments are expected to follow in the coming days.
