Fiorentina appeals Gilardino's 2-game ban

Fiorentina appeals Gilardino's 2-game ban

Fiorentina decided Tuesday to appeal Alberto Gilardino's two-game ban for scoring with his hand against Palermo.
The Italian league ruled on Monday that Gilardino was unsportsmanlike for not acknowledging that he scored with his hand in Fiorentina's 3-1 win over Palermo at the weekend.
Gilardino scored his league-leading seventh goal by redirecting a cross with his forearm as he slid down at the edge of the box.
Inter faces three-time defending Serie A champion Inter Milan on Wednesday, then visits Siena in a Tuscan derby on Sunday.
The league was expected to rule on the appeal later Tuesday.
