Milan could be fined, as the Disciplinary Commission has opened an investigation into the insulting banners against Inter on the Scudetto parade, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic also mocked Hakan Calhanoglu.
The Rossoneri are celebrating their 19th Serie A title, pipping Inter to the post by two points thanks to their 3-0 victory away to Sassuolo.
Right at the start of the parade going from Casa Milan to Piazza Duomo, the players held up a large banner at the front of the open-top bus that read: ‘Stick the Coppa Italia up you’re a**!’
It was a reference to Inter, who won the Coppa Italia after beating Milan in the semi-finals.
Before the parade had even reached Piazza Duomo, the Disciplinary Commission had already opened an investigation into the violation of article 4, which covers ‘the principles of fair play and probity.’
This was a reference to the 2007 banner that Massimo Ambrosini held when Milan were celebrating the Champions League and Inter had taken the Scudetto.
It wasn’t the only anti-Inter sentiment of the parade, as Theo Hernandez also started an insulting chant, while Ibrahimovic took the microphone and asked the fans if they had “a message for Hakan.”
Calhanoglu was in the Milan squad last season and left as a free agent to go across the city to Inter.

Milan player Ante Rebic also held up a large poster with an image of Inter coach Simone Inzaghi and the word ‘Spiaze.’
This has become a meme on social media and is mocking the way Inzaghi says ‘dispiace’ (disappointing) in his Piacenza accent.
