Gattuso escapes derby ban after sending-off

AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso escaped a ban from Sunday's derby against Inter Milan when he was let off with a fine and a warning after being sent off in his team's last match.

Serie A's disciplinary tribunal said in a statement on Tuesday that Gattuso "left the technical area and made an intimidating remark to a player of the opposing team" during the 2-1 win at Chievo on Saturday.

Gattuso, ordered from the touchline, was fined €15 000 and given a warning. Milan, third in Serie A, face fourth-placed Inter at San Siro on Sunday.

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini, however, was banned for one game for pushing a Sampdoria official in the tunnel after being sent off in his team's 2-1 win on Sunday.

Gasperini, dismissed for angrily protesting a penalty, said after the game that he had merely "nudged aside" the official and that Sampdoria had made a "song and dance" about it.

However, on Monday, he apologised after a video of the incident was published on several websites.
