Higuaín appeal against Juventus red card rejected
The Argentina striker will miss AC Milan's next two Serie A matches against Lazio and Parma after having his appeal against a red card dismissed.
AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuaín's appeal against a two-match ban for a red card and on-pitch meltdown against Juventus has been rejected by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).
Higuaín endured a nightmare showing against parent club Juve in Milan's final game prior to the international break, missing a penalty before receiving his marching orders in the second half.
The Argentina international had to be led off the pitch by team-mates after he reacted furiously to referee Paolo Mazzoleni's decision to show him a straight red card.
Higuaín out for Lazio and Parma
Higuaín was initially booked for dissent but then dismissed for persisting with his complaints to the official, and his behaviour saw him slapped with a two-match suspension.
Milan lodged an appeal, but that has been rejected by the FIGC, meaning Gennaro Gattuso's men – who are fifth in Serie A – will be without the striker for the matches against Lazio and Parma.
