Following medical tests, the club outlined the treatment path ahead for Acerbi, adding that an appeal had been lodged with the anti-doping commission

"Following consultation with the National Institute for Tumours in Milan and Professor Roberto Salvioni, the pharmacological anti-tumour protocol the player will undergo was defined," Sassuolo said on their website.
