Inter have seen their appeal rejected, so Gary Medel will have to sit out the entire three-match Serie A ban.
The suspension was imposed after he was caught on camera lashing out at Jasmin Kurtic during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Atalanta.
Medel was seen swinging out an arm at Kurtic’s head, sending him to the ground.
As it was an off the ball incident and they were behind the referee, so not spotted by any of the officials, video evidence was valid in this case.
Inter lodged an appeal, but it was rejected this evening.
Chile international Medel will miss Serie A games against Torino, Sampdoria and Crotone, but he’ll be available for the Milan Derby in Week 13.
