Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni and striker Antonio Cassano have been banned for one and two matches respectively, Italian Serie A bosses announced.

Serie A officials said in a statement, Stramaccioni was banned from the touchline for the next league game after "protesting a refereeing decision, leaving the designated coach's technical area and making offensive remarks to match officials," reports Xinhua.

Cassano's ban was for "making offensive remarks to the referee on the way down the players' tunnel following the game."

Stramaccioni was red carded for protesting against the decision not to award the spot-kick while Cassano remonstrated with the referee on the way down the players' tunnel after the final whistle in Inter's 2-2 draw with Cagliari Sunday.

Inter remain second with a four-point deficit to champions and leaders Juventus.
