Ac Milan’s player Ante Rebic has been given a two-game suspension after he called a match official mother a “prostitute.” Rebic was exasperated by the referee’s decision during a game with Napoli on Sunday. Ac Milan lost that game with a 1-0 scoreline after Matteo Politano’s strike in the second half ensured the visitors took all three points.
Acording to informazione.it, Rebic told the referee Fabrizio Pasqua “I saw your mother being a prostitute in Naples.” The referee did not hesitate to show the Croatian a straight red card.
A disciplinary Commission weighed in this matter and handed the Croatian a two-game Serie A suspension. ESPN’s Matteo Bonetti weighed on this issue and felt that Rebic deserved more than a two-game suspension. Bonetti tweeted:
Ac Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was fined €10,000 as a punishment during the encounter. Donnarumma’s fine was as a result of him displaying a ‘threatening and offensive attitude’ towards his opponents as per Football Italia.
Rebic suspension means that he will not be in action in the crucial Serie A games against A against Fiorentina and Sampdoria. In June 2020 during a return leg of Copa Italia semi-final against Juventus, the Croatian caused his team to be eliminated after he was sent off for a dangerously high foot on Danilo just 18 minutes into the game.
