Mario Balotelli Receives 3-Game Ban, Milan Will Not Appeal Ruling

Mario Balotelli had a rough Sunday. 

Not only did he miss his first penalty in 22 tries, but he now also faces a three-match ban after confronting a referee following AC Milan's 2-1 loss against Napoli.

From Football Italia:

Mario Balotelli’s post-game confrontation with the referee has cost him a three-match ban. He’ll miss Milan’s games against Bologna, Sampdoria and Juventus.

The Italian international was shown the red card by referee Banti after the final whistle for taking his protests too far following the 2-1 loss against Napoli last night.

Milan are ready to appeal against the sentence.

 Milan have since decided not to appeal the ban after seeing the reasoning behind the decision.
