(ANSA) – ROME, APR 13 – A sporting prosecutor has requested
that Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini be banned for 20 days
for interrupting a surprise doping test on one of his players,
insulting the inspector and blasting the whole anti-doping
system, ANSA sources said on Tuesday.
    Gasperini allegedly stopped the test and forced his player to go
and train.
    He faces a hearing before an anti-doping tribunal on May 10.
    If the tribunal upholds the prosecutor’s request, Gasperini
would not be able to have any contact with his players during
the suspension and would miss the last three games of the Serie
A season and the Italian Cup final against Juventus.
    Atalanta are currently fourth in Serie A, which puts them in the
Champions League qualification zone. (ANSA).
