Fiorentina plan to appeal against the three-day suspension of Mauro Zarate.
The Argentinian was seen grabbing an opponent's neck during the hard-fought game against Inter last Sunday.
He was disqualified for three days, which rules him out of the games against Atalanta, Napoli and third-place contender Roma.
According to SportMediaset, Fiorentina have already prepared an appeal and will be hoping to get the penalty reduced.
The player is hugely disappointed and said as much on Twitter.
“I'm watching the game again, I can't believe it! I'm speechless!”, reads his profile.
