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.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
