Milan confirmed they will co-operate in the investigation of an “unpleasant incident” involving Tiemoue Bakayoko and Franck Kessie waving Francesco Acerbi's shirt.

The Disciplinary Commission today ruled it would not act on the controversial waving of Lazio defender Acerbi’s jersey in front of the ultras.

However, this is because it was considered outside the purview of the judge and moved over to the Federal Prosecutor and FIGC instead.

Milan confirmed they will co-operate in the investigation of an “unpleasant incident” involving Tiemoue Bakayoko and Franck Kessie waving Francesco Acerbi's shirt.

The Disciplinary Commission today ruled it would not act on the controversial waving of Lazio defender Acerbi’s jersey in front of the ultras.

However, this is because it was considered outside the purview of the judge and moved over to the Federal Prosecutor and FIGC instead.

That is because there was nothing violent about the gesture, but it could be considered a violation of the code of ethics and unsporting behaviour.

“AC Milan, relative to the incidents at the end of the Serie A Week 32 match between Milan and Lazio, acknowledge the disciplinary action taken by the Disciplinary Commission and the decision to hand to the Federal Prosecutor the competence of investigation into players Franck Kessie and Tiemoue Bakayoko, an incident that became the focus of strong media attention to the detriment of the other incidents that occurred that night,” read the club statement.

“Aware that it was an unpleasant incident, which the Club promptly dealt with internally, AC Milan intend to co-operate with the Federal Prosecutor so that the investigation can reach its conclusion, certain that its outcome will not in any way be affected by the declarations made over the last few hours.

“AC Milan will now focus its attention on to the next important season commitments.”

Milan were fined €10,000 after a fan in the crowd spat at Lazio Coach Simone Inzaghi during the ill-tempered 1-0 home win.

There were fines worth €10,000 also for those players who took part in the brawl at the final whistle, namely Andrea Bertolacci, Kessie, Mateo Musacchio, Luiz Felipe and Patric.

Lazio midfielder Lucas Leiva was fined €10,000 for an offensive phrase aimed towards a member of the Milan press office.
