Former Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi has been banned for three months by the Italian football league after he attacked midfielder Adem Ljajic during yesterday's 2-2 draw against Novara.

The 51-year-old struck Ljajic in the dugout after the player's apparent dissent at being substituted just 32 minutes into the match.

Fiorentina dismissed Rossi hours after the incident and have appointed team manager Vincenzo Guerini as their coach until the end of the season.
