Roma coach escapes phone fine
The former Lille boss spoke to assistant Frederic Bompard via his mobile after their radio equipment failed.
League regulations state that using a mobile phone on the bench is prohibited, unless calling a doctor, and radio equipment must be used instead.
However, with the incident not being included in the referee’s report, Garcia escaped a potential fine.
On the incident the Giallorossi coach noted, “Can I be fined? Really? I didn’t know using a mobile was not permitted. It’s different in France.”
