Roma Owner James Pallotta gets Three-Month Uefa Match Ban

Roma owner James Pallotta has been banned from attending any Uefa game for three months – and his club fined 19,000 euros (£17,025) – after their Champions League defeat by Liverpool.

Pallotta was sanctioned for calling the match officiating an “absolute joke”.

The club were charged over insufficient organisation and a blocked stairway at the match in Rome on 2 May, and for fans setting off fireworks.

Liverpool lost the semi-final second leg 4-2, but won 7-6 on aggregate.

Roma’s fine follows a 50,000 euros (£43,632) penalty for crowd trouble at the first leg on 24 April. Liverpool fan Sean Cox suffered serious head injuries in an attack outside Anfield before that game.
