Gennaro Gattuso has been handed a four match ban by UEFA after they ruled that he had assaulted Spurs assistant Joe Jordan in the San Siro last week.
The official statement from UEFA reads: “The control and disciplinary body ruled that Gattuso had assaulted the Tottenham Hotspur assistant coach Joe Jordan after the match.
“Gattuso, who was also cautioned in the 76th minute of the game, is already suspended for the return leg of the UEFA Champions League tie against Tottenham after receiving three yellow cards.
“Consequently, the four-match suspension applies to the next four UEFA club competition matches for which he would be eligible.”
Gattuso would have been guaranteed a hot reception at White Hart Lane had he been eligible to play, but he’s now able to dodge that one. Clearly we all hope that Milan don’t progress in two weeks so Gattuso’s ban will carry over to next season.
