Philippe Mexes: Receives a three-game suspension

The France international punched Chiellini in the neck during Juve's 3-2 triumph over AC Milan in Turin on Sunday and, although the referee failed to see the action, TV evidence was used to determine the punishment.

Mexes was sent off during the encounter for two bookable offences, which resulted in a further one-match ban.

The 31-year-old will miss the league games against Udinese, Parma, Lazio and Fiorentina.

A Lega Serie A statement read: "The sporting judge punishes Philippe Mexes with a three-match ban for violent conduct in relation to an action that saw the Rossonero defender punch Giorgio Chiellini in the neck during a corner kick.

"Mexes is also handed a one-match ban for being sent off for a double booking during the game."

Mexes' absence is a blow for Rossoneri coach Massimiliano Allegri, who is without injured defenders Ignazio Abate, Daniele Bonera, Matias Silvestre and Mattia De Sciglio.

Milan have confirmed, meanwhile, that they will appeal against the decision taken by the sporting judge to close the San Siro for their next home game against Udinese on October 19 because of insulting chants by their fans towards rival supporters.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
