Torino defender Paolo Dellafiore has been handed a one-game suspension after referee Domenico Celi admitted he should have sent the player off at the weekend.

Celi filed a report to the league admitting that he booked Dellafiore twice during Torino´s 4-1 loss to Roma on Sunday, but failed to show the player a red card.

Dellafiore was shown the first yellow card after bringing down Simone Perrotta for the penalty kick which put Roma ahead in the 18th minute. He was then cautioned for a second time early in the second half.
