In the recent match between AC Milan and Lecce, coach Stefano Pioli and his team were unexpectedly held to a draw by the home team despite taking a 2-0 lead after the first 45 minutes. Not stopping there, veteran striker Olivier Giroud was also disqualified in the 90+3 minute.
After seeing the home team lose their lead, the former Arsenal player lost his temper with the referee, Mr. Rosario Abisso, causing him to be sent off the field for receiving two yellow cards. According to an official statement from the Serie A representative, Olivier Giroud will be suspended for 2 matches.
“Olivier Giroud was disqualified from the next two matches for insulting and protesting against the referee”, said sports referee Gerardo Mastrandrea. Normally, a player who is sent off for receiving 2 yellow cards is only suspended for 1 match.
This will be a significant loss for AC Milan in the context that they are far behind Juventus and Inter Milan in the Serie A rankings. Despite his age, Olivier Giroud still has important contributions to the “Rossoneri” attack. from the beginning of the season.
