Juventus and several of their staff have been given hefty fines for criticising referee Marco Guida in their 1-1 draw against Genoa at the weekend.

Manager Antonio Conte and defender Leonardo Bonucci have received two-match bans, whilst also being fined €10,000 each after the referee failed to award the Turin side a late penalty.

The Bianconeri were incensed when Guida and his assistants failed to spot Andreas Granqvist using a hand in the dying seconds of the game.

Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, who was injured for the match and ran onto the pitch from the stands, and striker Mirko Vucinic have been handed one-match bans.

Club director Giuseppe Marotta has also been banned, with the 55-year-old unable to attend any matches until February 18.

Prior to the drama at the end of the game, Fabio Quagliarella put Juve ahead nine minutes into the second half, but Marco Borriello equalised in the 68th minute at the Juventus Stadium.

The Lega Serie A have also handed the club a €50,000 fine for failing to handle their players, staff and fans, with reports suggesting that some fans spat at the officials as they left the field.
