Parma defender Fernando Couto has been handed an additional three-game ban after Italian football´s disciplinary committee studied video footage of his foul on Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Couto received a straight red card for the foul during Parma´s delayed Serie A match with Juventus on Wednesday night, receiving an automatic one-game ban in the process.

But on Thursday the league disciplinary committee added three more games to his sentence after viewing what it called "a true and proper intentional punch to the face".
