Mario Balotelli has been banned for three matches following a confrontation with the referee after AC Milan's loss to Napoli.

The Italy striker will miss the next three matches for making "insulting and intimidating comments" toward the referee.

Balotelli will miss the games against Bologna, Sampdoria and Juventus.

Milan will have its Curva Sud section shut for the next home game against Sampdoria as punishment for racist chanting during the loss to Napoli.

AC Milan has announced it will appeal both sentences.
