Udinese's Sulley Muntari has been handed a three game suspension.Udinese have been handed a blow with news that Sulley Muntari has been handed a three-game suspension.
Muntari saw red on Sunday against Juventus after just 38 minutes for a second yellow card, despite the fact he appeared to play the ball in a tackle on Pavel Nedved.
Udinese are expected to appeal against the length of the ban but the fact Muntari took off his shirt and threw it at referee Antonio Dattilo is unlikely to endear him to any disciplinary panel.
Joining Muntari in the ranks of the suspended is in fact Dattilo, whose own refereeing was adjudged not to have been up to the standard required in Serie A.
The sending off of Muntari was not the only talking point of an intriguing encounter, with Alessandro Del Piero's winning goal having been dispatched from an off-side position.
Meanwhile, referee Roberto Rosetti has also been suspended for his performance in the clash between Livorno and Messina.
