In a statement posted on its website, the FFF said the disciplinary commission imposed one-year ban to the Brazilian director from the bench, the referees` dressing-room and from all official functions till June 30, 2014, reports Xinhua.
The former Inter and AC Milan manager whose suspension runs from May 8, had denied pushing the referee during the PSG vs Valenciennes game last season, saying he was shoved towards him by the match delegate.
