Turin, Italy:

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni and striker Antonio Cassano have been handed one and two-match bans respectively, Italian league bosses announced on Tuesday.

Inter's 2-2 draw with Cagliari at their San Siro ground on Sunday was marred by controversy after the hosts were denied a late penalty that could have allowed them to collect all three points.

Stramaccioni was red carded for protesting against the decision not to award the spot-kick while Cassano remonstrated with the referee on the way down the players' tunnel after the final whistle.

Serie A officials said in a statement Stramaccioni was banned from the touchline for the next league game after "protesting a refereeing decision, leaving the designated coach's technical area and making offensive remarks to match officials".

Cassano's ban was for "making offensive remarks to the referee on the way down the players' tunnel following the game".

The two dropped points meant Inter remain second with a four-point deficit to champions and leaders Juventus.
