Navarro banned for seven months

Wednesday, 14 March 2007

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has fined both Valencia CF and FC Internazionale Milano €155,772 (CHF250,000), and suspended Valencia defender David Navarro for seven months, following the incidents which took place at the end of last week’s UEFA Champions League encounter in Spain.

Official reports

After examining the official reports of the delegate and referee, as well as video evidence, the UEFA disciplinary body has also imposed bans on several other players from both teams for their part in the incidents after the final whistle. The first knockout round, second leg finished 0-0, with Valencia progressing to the quarter-finals on away goals after a 2-2 first-leg draw.

Others banned

In addition to Navarro, Inter defenders Nicolás Burdisso and Maicon have been banned for six matches and Valencia defender Carlos Marchena for four. Inter defender Iván Córdoba and striker Julio Cruz have received three and two-match bans respectively.

Request to FIFA

UEFA said it would now ask world football’s governing body FIFA to extend the suspension imposed on Navarro to international level so that it also applies to any football competitions - including domestic leagues and national-team fixtures - on top of UEFA club competition matches. The suspensions imposed on the other players will only apply to UEFA club competitions. Appeals may be lodged against any of these decisions within three days after receipt of the written grounds for the decisions.

Toug on us...what exactly did Burdisso do to deserve a penalty like that

Isnt Burdisso the one who actually started the altercation? I thought he went after the Valencia player, and was then hit in the nose...I could be wrong though.

I applaud UEFA though, this kind of stuff needs to stop!

It makes the Italian teams looking bad. I mean with the Catania thing earlier, the cheating by Juve, AC, Fiorentina, Lazio, the whole thing with the fans attacking Inter after getting off the plane after last year's defeat to Villareal. This is just looking bad...I love Serie A, and I go to Inter through and trough, but this just needs to stop, and I think this is a step in the right direction.

Burdisso, like some other Inter players that understand Spanish, reacted to a verbal provocation by Marchena. But it was nothing that deserved a broken nose ...or this kind of punishment!

That makes sense, I forget that almost all of Inter are Argentinians.

Harsh or not, it is good to finally see UEFA take this seriously.

Yes, Inter is the Argentina in Europe

I agree that it's right from Uefa to react in a serious manner but I still feel that Inter players are paying too severely for this. Especially Burdisso. I can understand the penalties on Cordoba and co, even if I can also understand their reaction. What Navarro did was cheap, cowardly and disgusting...

Navarro punching and then running away like a lil girl (no offense to any females in the forum). I would think that Valencia has to be ashamed of him. I wish we would be out longer, I mean what an Idiot
