Massimiliano Allegri’s disastrous start to the season continues after the Milan man was handed a one-match touchline ban.

The tactician, who is fighting to save his job, will have to watch the Cagliari game on Wednesday from the stands after he was banned for insults aimed at the referee during the loss at Udinese.

Milan will also be without Cristian Zapata and Kevin Prince Boateng as they were dismissed in the 2-1 loss at the Stadio Friuli.

Catania’s Pablo Alvarez and Pescara ‘keeper Mattia Perin will also sit out the midweek round.

Meanwhile, Sampdoria’s Maxi Lopez will have to watch the next 180 minutes of action from his home given his actions during the 1-1 draw with Torino.

The Argentine was reported to the disciplinary panel for kicking the referee’s door at the end of the game, while hurling insults at the officials at the same time.
