Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi and his defender Francesco Acerbi could be punished for their actions against AS Roma.

The Nerazzurri emerged victorious at the Olimpico by four goals to two. However, a couple of controversial incidents occurred in the process.

Acerbi scored the opener before showing the middle finger to a section of the Roma supporters. This as a response to Roma fans chanting “you must die.”

As for Inzaghi, he was serving a one-match touchline ban after receiving his marching orders against Juventus.

However, a post-match comment from Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni implied that the coach had a video call with the squad when they were trailing at half-time.

Therefore, the FIGC prosecution office launched an inquiry into both cases.

On Tuesday, a prosecutor arrived at the club’s training center in Appiano Gentile and listened to both Acerbi and Bastoni – the latter as a witness.

Concerning Inzaghi’s alleged call, there appears to be a lack of evidence regarding the inclusion of tactical instructions, explains La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews.

It seems that the 47-year-old only had words of encouragement for his players.

Therefore, a fine would suffice in his case, as the source expects.

Inter Milan Coach Simone Inzaghi & Defender Francesco Acerbi To Receive Fines

As for Acerbi, he reportedly admitted guilt and apologized for his obscene gesture.

So just like his manager, the Italian defender will likely receive a fine, thus avoiding suspension.

Nevertheless, the 35-year-old will likely miss this Friday’s clash with Salernitana due to a slight muscle strain.

Inzaghi will be hoping to have the key defender back at his disposal for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid.
