Banned Mexes on the defensive

Milan stopper Philippe Mexes has defended his actions against Juventus which led to a suspension. “I get hit too.”

The defender was yesterday banned for the Rossoneri’s next three League games after striking Marco Borriello in an off-the-ball incident during Saturday's 1-1 draw.

“These things shouldn’t happen, that is clear, but there was nothing vicious in it,” stated the French international.

“I suffer a few blows too during games, but I don’t go down to the ground and start rolling around…”

The 29-year-old has made nine League appearances for the Rossoneri this season after recovering from knee ligament damage.

He will miss Milan’s games against Palermo, Lecce and Parma.
