Goalkeeper AC Milan, returning Andrea Conti from a one-year absence from injury ended with a ban in three matches after he hit the judge and insulted the official match at the end of the youth play.
MILAN: AC Milan defender Milan Andrei Conti from a one-year absence from injury ended up with a three-shot ban after knocking a judge and insulting an official game at the end of the youth team game.
Meanwhile, director Paolo Maldini, who spent his 25-year career in Milan, was banned for a week after insulting the official after playing against Chieva, according to a Serie A league.
Conti, 24, played his first match at any level since August last year after suffering knee injury.
The Disciplinary Tribunal of Serie A said that Conti "found a judge in his wardrobe at the end of the game and prevented him from closing the door by knocking him with his fists, and at the same time shouted bad comments on the judge."
The statement adds that Maldini "unanimously entered the pork of the judge and directed an offensive note to him."
Maldini has made a record 647 record highs, before retiring at age 40 of 2009. In all competitions he made 902 appearances in clubs, winning seven Serie A titles and five European Cup titles or the Champions League.
