Gonzalo Higuain has been handed a two-match ban after an on-pitch meltdown following his dismissal in AC Milan’s 2-0 defeat to his parent club Juventus on Sunday.
Higuain endured a nightmare showing against Juve, missing a penalty before receiving his marching orders in the second half.
The Argentina international had to be led off the pitch by team-mates after he reacted furiously to referee Paolo Mazzoleni’s decision to show him a straight red card.
Higuain was initially booked for dissent but was dismissed for persisting with his complaints to the official.
Lega Serie A on Tuesday announced the 30-year-old would be forced to sit out two matches.
The 30-year-old apologised to fans for the incident, but claimed that his emotions got the better of him during the game.
