Koulibaly banned for two games

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has been given a two-match ban after seeing red for dissent against Cagliari.

Koulibaly was shown a straight red card towards the end of Napoli’s 1-0 home defeat to Cagliari on Wednesday.

The FIGC’s sporting judge has now ruled that Koulibaly showed “a disrespectful attitude” to referee Marco Di Bello.

The Senegalese is also fined €10,000 and will miss the Partenopei’s next Serie A games against Brescia and Torino.

Elsewhere, Milan goalkeeper Pepe Reina is suspended for a game and fined €5,000 for his own show of dissent against Torino.

Sampdoria centre-back Jeison Murillo will similarly sit out the next round of action after two bookable offences.
