January 7, 2015

ROME (AP) — Inter Milan defender Juan Jesus has been banned for three matches for elbowing Juventus counterpart Giorgio Chiellini in the chin during a 1-1 draw.

The incident was not sanctioned by the referee but the Serie A judge used TV replays to decide on the ban for the Brazilian.

Jesus will also miss one more match for picking up a yellow card at another point during Tuesday’s game.

Chiellini was also the recipient of Luis Suarez’s bite during the World Cup during the Italy-Uruguay match.

Also, Fiorentina defender Stefan Savic was banned for four matches for elbowing a defender in the face during a 1-0 loss to Parma.
