Palermo chief: Gila deserves a five-game ban

The Fiorentina striker scored Fiorentina’s first goal with his wrist in the 3-1 win over Palermo.

“It’s disgraceful,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I’m asking for video evidence to be used.

“Gilardino deserves to be banned for five games. He even celebrated – it was incredible.

“Palermo were robbed and it was down to the referee and linesmen. Two years ago, Adrian Mutu scored while one of our players was down injured and now this has happened.

“And to think Fiorentina present themselves as champions of fair play and the terzo tempo.”
