Referee Piero Giacomelli and VAR Luigi Nasca suspended for a month after their controversial Milan-Roma judgments.
In the 3-3 tie, one for each side there were two highly controversial punishments, and even former officials proved to be difficult to defend.
SportMediaset reports that as a consequence, both referee Giacomelli and VAR Nasca will be suspended for a month by refereeing designator Nicola Rizzoli.
As retribution for the referee’s bad decisions and the VAR’s inability to do its job by alerting the official to possible errors, any Serie A matches will not be assigned.
The designator did, however, rule that Milan should not have earned a penalty for the handball of Gianluca Mancini, because after being pushed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he just made contact with his shoulder.
However, there was still a mistake here, as Ibrahimovic should not have been booked for the slight push.
