Gor Mahia fitness coach Sandro Fantoni has been handed a three match ban by the League’s Independent and Disciplinary Complaints Committee (IDCC) due to what the body described as engaging in unsporting behavior in the club’s outing against Muhoroni Youth in the 2016 KPL Top 8 Finals.

Fantoni is said to have provoked a Muhoroni Youth official during the pre-match warm up and engaged in a fight with KPL official GMT Ottieno. Fantoni was also fined a sum of Ksh 100000 and warned of severe action should he commit similar offence within the next six months of the 2017 season.

Statement

Gor Mahia coach Sandro Fantoni has been handed a three-match suspension by the League’s Independent and Disciplinary Complaints Committee (IDCC).

The committee found Fantoni guilty of unsporting conduct during Gor Mahia’s league match against Muhoroni Youth last season.

The Kenyan Premier League had charged the Gor coach with violently provoking a Muhoroni Youth Club official during the pre-match warm-up of the said fixture and also engaging in a fight with KPL official GMT Otieno.

The committee also fined Fantoni Sh100,000 and warned him of further, severe action should he commit a similar offense within the next six months of the 2017 season.

In the said match, Muhoroni Youth won the tie to hand them their first major title with celebrations being cut short by a section of the Gor Mahia fans who seemingly were not happy with the day's proceedings.
