AC Milan's Jeremy Menez receives four-match ban for 'insulting gestures'

Jeremy Menez will not be able to help Milan's efforts to qualify for Europe.

Jeremy Menez's season is effectively over after the AC Milan forward was handed a four-match ban.

The 27-year-old former Paris Saint-Germain player was sent off during the second half of Milan's 3-1 Serie A defeat to Genoa at San Siro on Wednesday and the "insulting gestures" he made in the aftermath have worked against him.

A statement from Serie A also condemned Menez for directing a "blasphemous expression" at the fourth official following his dismissal.

Menez had taken exception to receiving a second yellow card for appearing to foul Edenilson and claimed it was teammate Philippe Mexes who committed the offence.

Milan, who are in 10th place after a disappointing season, have only five games remaining to climb towards the European places and they will largely be without the services of a player who has scored 16 goals this term.
