Juraj Kucka and M’Baye Niang received red cards against Napoli and have learned the decisions of the Serie A judge today.

The Sport Judge decisions of the Serie A TIM Second Round were posted on Tuesday morning and coach Vincenzo Montella received some bad news.

Kucka was sent off in the 76′ minute of the game against Napoli and has been handed a 2-match ban for his actions for which he has already apologized.

The Sport Judge explained their decision, writing that he Kucka protested against referee Paolo Valeri & his staff before getting booked and then insulted them which resulted in a red card and a two-match suspension. Kucka will miss the games against Udinese and Samp.

Meanwhile Niang will only face one game out due to his 2 yellow cards against Napoli. After Matchday 2, the Rossoneri have already got 3 red cards this season which is the same number of cards of that color they received in the entirely of the 15/16 season. Montella will have to work on the disciplinary situation.

Come on guys, let’s be possitive here, at least we have space to field in other players and maybe try out new formations or tactics!

We don’t have many players like him in the squad.. So it’s going to be either Honda or Poli?

What was galliani thinking when he sign all our midfielders? Did he himself actually believed in it?

Shouldnt appeal guys though ref was f.cked up but the punishment is fair if Kucka really does insult. On his way leaving the pitch i saw him saying something to one of the officials while covering his mouth and that I feel he mustnt be saying something right.

I miss the days of gattuso where he would insult and fight players/coaches/officials on the pitch, and everyone would be too scared to do anything to him. It’s not about him doing anything wrong, it just shows his passion towards the game

i’m not sure if you have watched gattuso play. the man has 2 red cards in his whole career. when you commit a clear foul, you don’t complain and bad mouth the referee. thats not passion, thats plain and utter stupidity. another example is maldini, no red card in his entire career (one! in a friendly match though). you have to be smart in the field. milan was trailing and he got himself a stupid red card. this was a balotelli move. referee was sub par, but this disciplinary thing is getting out of hand. romagnoli was lucky not to… Read more »

We’re talking about gattuso, the guy that has a fight with a player almost every match and would shout at the referee after every decision against milan. And have you seen the match when he was still with sion when he took the red card from the referee’s hand and raised it to the opponent?? Every other player would have gotten a red card. But gattuso is different, he does these things out of passion.

Well at least certain members of the team showed some passion, anger and announce to losing a game we could have won.

Rather than ac Milan players, showing the fans no emotion at all to losing.

Losing badly, is showing an announce to your performance. Hopefully showing an intent to improve or win at the next opportunity.

Milan players just have to play it cool, concentrate on winning games and receiving red cards
