National news agency ANSA and the Gazzetta Dello Sport both report that anti-doping prosecutors have requested the 63-year-old be banned for 20 days for interrupting a surprise test on one of his players in early February.

The Gazzetta quotes anti-doping prosecutor Pierfilippo Laviani as saying: “He insulted an inspector during a surprise test and railed against the entire anti-doping system, interrupting an ongoing test and forcing the player to return to training”.

Should the requested punishment be confirmed, Gasperini would miss the final three matches of the Serie A campaign, in which his side are chasing Champions League qualification for the third straight season, and the cup final against Juventus on May 19.
