Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso Slapped With One Game Ban For Inter Sending Off

gattuso_224394 Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has been handed a one match ban by the Italian football authorities, according to La Repubblica.

Sports judge Gianpaolo Tosel gave the midfielder a suspension following his double yellow during the Milan derby against Inter. Gattuso received a caution for pulling down Samuel Eto’o in the box, before being shown a second card following a rash challenge on Wesley Sneijder.

The Italian will now miss the game against Livorno this weekend. However, Gattuso is injured in any case, picking up a knock against the Nerazzurri.

Bari’s Ferdinando Sforzini has been given a two game ban, while Lazio’s Emilson Sanchez Cribari will be out of the Juventus clash after he was handed a one match suspension. Livorno’s Mirko Pieri has suffered the same fate.

Cagliari and Juventus have both been fined €15,000 for fan trouble. Roma were given a €12,000 penalty. Meanwhile, Inter and Napoli received a €5,000 sanction, with Atalanta being charged €4,000.
