Mario Balotelli banned three matches
The controversial frontman is at it again. Balotelli was handed the ban for making abusive comments towards a match official. In English,
“What the [expletive] are you looking at?”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up a similar ban while in Serie A. For Milan, they will lose their in form striker for the upcoming fixtures:
- Home to Napoli
- Away to Juventus
- Home to Catania
Mario’s absence could allow El Shaarawy to have a bigger influence on proceedings and break his recent duck. Il faraone has sixteen goals this term, but hasn’t netted since the Milan derby on February 24th.
