Two-match ban for Ljajic

More bad news for Fiorentina, as Adem Ljajic is handed a two-match ban for insulting the referee after their defeat to Roma.

The Viola’s Champions League hopes suffered a massive blow last night with a 1-0 home loss to the Giallorossi.

There was a strong penalty shout for a Daniele De Rossi handling offence during that game and the last-gasp defeat infuriated the players.

Ljajic took his protests too far and has been given a two-match ban for insulting the referee on the way back to the locker room.

It rules the young Serbian out of Serie A games against Siena and Palermo.

Coach Vincenzo Montella also received a warning and a €10,000 fine for insults and sarcastic phrases towards the official.

Nenad Tomovic picked up a yellow card during the game and will be suspended for next week’s clash with Siena.
