Messina will appeal against Marco Zanchi's suspension for a failed drug test.
Messina will appeal against the Italian Disciplinary Commission's decision to suspend defender Marco Zanchi.
Zanchi tested positive for the steroid-related drug Metilprednisolon after undergoing a test on the opening day of the Serie A season.
Messina state Zanchi took the anti-inflammatory agent in order to help cure a muscle problem before the meeting with Lazio and claim they indicated as much prior to the testing.
No date for the appeal hearing has yet been set, however the Commission's decision will force the player to miss his side's match at Siena on Sunday.
