Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri free to watch game at Chelsea
Tuesday 13 March 2012
Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri will be able to watch his side bid to reach the last eight of the Champions League at Chelsea tomorrow after having his touchline ban temporarily suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the club have reported on their official website.
Mazzarri had been handed a two-match ban by UEFA for improper conduct after he pushed Villarreal forward Nilmar over alleged time-wasting tactics during a group game in December.
UEFA increased the length of the ban to three games - the final game suspended for two years - after rejecting Napoli's appeal against the sanction.
Mazzarri had to watch Napoli win the first leg 3-1 against Chelsea on TV but will be at Stamford Bridge after CAS suspended the ban in order to study Napoli's appeal.
