Gattuso avoids derby ban

Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has avoided a touchline ban for the Derby della Madonnina against Inter this weekend.

Gattuso risked suspension as he was sent to the stands during Milan’s 2-1 win against Chievo on Saturday.

However, the FIGC ruled on Tuesday that the Coach was fined just €15,000 for his troubles.

Elsewhere, Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has similarly avoided a heavy punishment for his push on Sampdoria secretary Massimo Ienca at the weekend.

Another Icardi derby

The Derby della Madonnina showed Inter and Milan’s best and worst, writes Richard Hall, and there was no surprise in who decided it.

The Derby della Madonnina showed the world it had lost none of its glamour and none of its appeal. The choreography from Milan's Curva Sud was exemplary, matched only by the majesty of the huge banner unveiled over three parts of Inter's Curva Nord, telling the world that 'The Serpent' was the symbol of Milan. The game itself entertained and frustrated both sets of supporters in equal measure and whilst it showcased how far both Milan clubs have come, it was also an advert for their deficiencies.
