Italian coach banned for headbutting rival coach after ordering one of his players to break an opponent

Giancarlo Favarin, the head coach of Lucchese in Serie C has been given a five-month ban for head-butting another coach after ordering one of his players to break an opponent’s legs

In the viral video below, Giancarlo is launching a killer headbutt on Gaetano Mancino, assistant coach of rivals Alessandria, which knocked him to the ground.

The incident occurred during a brawl at the end of a 2-2 draw between the sides on Monday. 

The Serie C tribunal said of his behaviour during the brawl: ‘Favarin began a slanging match with a member of the opposing team’s staff at the peak of which he hit the latter with a violent headbutt, making him fall to the ground’. 

The tribunal added that the 60-year-old ‘invited his own player to ‘break the legs’ of an opponent.’ 

Mancino, the recipient of the headbutt, was also punished for ‘offensive and provocative behaviour’ and was given a two-match ban.
