Italian coach banned for headbutting rival.
Giancarlo Favarin was caught on camera headbutting Gaetano Mancino, assistant coach of rivals Alessandria, during a brawl after a two all drawn game with his side Lucchese in the Serie C.
He was also charged for telling his player to break the leg of an opposing player.
Giancarlo Favarin has there been banned after being found guilty based on video evidence and will serve a five months suspension.
Serie C's disciplinary tribunal said in a statement that Favarin made 'blasphemous remarks' during the match and 'invited his own player to 'break the legs' of an opponent.'
He also 'began a slanging match with a member of the opposing team's staff at the peak of which he hit the latter with a violent head butt, making him fall to the ground '.
Mancino, meanwhile, was given a two-match ban for 'offensive and provocative behaviour towards the coach of the rival team during the match.'
