Soccer:FIGC chief Tavecchio gets 6-mth commission ban-update

UEFA punishment for banana-eating comments

(ANSA) - Rome, October 7 - Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) President Carlo Tavecchio will be banned from UEFA commissions for six months as punishment for his comments on "banana-eating" foreign players before his election this summer, sources at European soccer's governing body said Tuesday. This means he will not be able to attend the UEFA congress in March 2015. Tavecchio will, however, be able to keep representing the FIGC, including at international matches, the sources said.
