Rome: Barcelona coach Josep Guardiola`s acquittal over a 2001 drugs ban has been appealed by Italy`s anti-doping prosecutor, the country`s Olympic Committee (CONI) said on Friday.
The Italian soccer federation said in May Guardiola had won his appeal with its disciplinary body against a four-month ban for failing tests for nandrolone while a Brescia player in 2001.

CONI said in a statement the anti-doping prosecutor had appealed against that decision with a hearing due on Sept. 15.
