Balotelli given three-game ban

Mario Balotelli has been handed a three-match ban for insulting the officials during Milan’s 2-2 draw with Fiorentina on Sunday.

The striker had already earned himself a one-match suspension after accumulating five yellow cards, but Serie A officials have today confirmed that the Italy international will now be banned for a further two games after comments he made to the officials.

It means the 22-year-old will be sidelined for games against Napoli, Juventus and Catania.

Milan have already announced they will lodge an appeal against the ban.
