Dope ban protest

SERIE A and B matches this weekend will kick off 15 minutes late in protest at the outcome of a doping case, the Italian players' association said yesterday. Napoli winger Daniele Mannini and Brescia striker Davide Possanzini were banned for a year by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Thursday after arriving late for a drugs test in 2007. The pair, who both played for Serie B side Brescia at the time of the test, were banned for 15 days in March by an Italian Olympic Committee judge but the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) appealed to CAS and asked for tougher sentences.
