Gonzalo Higuain has been handed a two-match ban after an on-pitch meltdown following his dismissal in AC Milan’s 2-0 defeat to his parent club Juventus on Sunday.
Higuain endured a nightmare showing against Juve, missing a penalty before receiving his marching orders in the second half.
The Argentina international had to be led off the pitch by teammates after he reacted furiously to referee Paolo Mazzoleni’s decision to show him a straight red card.
Higuain was initially booked for dissent but was dismissed for persisting with his complaints to the official.
Lega Serie A on Tuesday announced the 30-year-old would be forced to sit out two matches, which are scheduled as the trip to Lazio on November 25 and the visit of Parma a week later.
