The Sport Judge decided to give Carlos Bacca a one-match ban for his protests after the controversial loss while the club has also been fined €5000; the Rossoneri will not fight the decisions.
Milan learned today that they will have three players suspended for the Saturday clash with Genoa (20:45 CET) as the Sport Judge decisions for the 28th matchday were posted today by the Lega Serie A.
And so, in addition to Jose Sosa (red card against Juventus) and Alessio Romagnoli (fifth booking), the Diavolo will also miss Carlos Bacca. The Colombian received a one-match ban for his actions after the highly-controversial 2-1 defeat to Juve (non-existent penalty in the 97′ minute) on Friday night at the Juventus Stadium.
The disciplinary committee of the league explained this decision among others, in a document which you can read here: “At the end of the game, already replaced and in civilian clothes, [he] very publicly and vehemently protested against an assistant referee, approaching him with an aggressive attitude, until he was detained and forcibly removed by the director and Coach of his team.”
Bacca was also fined €10,000 while the club itself was fined €5000 for “failing to prevent a director from entering the field of play”, addressing the fact that Adriano Galliani walked on the pitch after the match was over. It’s also been confirmed that the CEO, along with director of sport Rocco Maiorino, has been warned for insulting Juventus and their players outside the home dressing room.
As reported by MilanTV, the club accepts the decisions and will put the match with Juventus entirely behind them now, not trying to fight the Sport Judge actions. The focus is on the Genoa match.
