Soccer 360 - - Serie A -

A lines­man in Italy’s eighth tier has been banned from football for five years af­ter head-butting one of the play­ers. The in­ci­dent oc­curred dur­ing a match be­tween A.S.D. Bug­gerru and Mon­reale Cal­cio, when in the sec­ond half a Mon­reale player who had been sub­sti­tuted tried to grab the ball by the side­line to get play restarted quickly. His ac­tions re­sulted in a scuffle with the as­sis­tant ref­eree and the of­fi­cial head-butted the Mon­reale player. A fight broke out be­tween the two sets of fans fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent as the as­sis­tant ref was des­ig­nated by Bug­gerru. The match was sub­se­quently and right­fully aban­doned.
