Ante Rebic Given A Two-Game Ban For Telling Referee, 'I Saw Your Mother Being A Prostitute In Naples'
| Last updated
AC Milan forward Ante Rebic has been given a two-game ban for calling a referee's mother a "prostitute".
The Croatian was incensed by a decision in the Rossoneri's 1-0 defeat to Napoli on Sunday and promptly insulted Fabrizio Pasqua, the man in the middle.
He was immediately shown a straight red card in the 92nd minute but the Disciplinary Commission have now elected to give the former Eintracht Frankfurt man a two-game ban for his comments.
Based on what Ante Rebic said to the referee, 100% deserved multi game suspension. https://t.co/LynwbInav0- Matteo Bonetti (@Bonetti) March 16, 2021
Ante Rebic dropping a "Figlio di puttana" (son of a whore) to referee Fabrizio Pasqua in the 92nd minute - whilst standing right behind him. Result? Red card and Milan only have Rafael Leaõ and the primavera strikers to rely on for the coming games.- Maxi (@MaaxiAngelo) March 14, 2021

And according to informazione.it, Rebic had disrespected the official by telling him, "I saw your mother being a prostitute in Naples."
Rebic will now be absent for upcoming Serie A games against Fiorentina and Sampdoria, while Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has been hit with a €10,000 fine for "threatening and offensive attitude" towards Napoli players.
This isn't the first time the 27-year-old has been punished for the way in which he has spoken to referees. During his final game for Frankfurt in 2019, Rebic was sent off for Strasbourg after abusing the ref.
His use of offensive language led to him being banned with five UEFA games "for serious rough play and insulting a match official".
Away from the pitch, it was reported in 2018 that Rebic had paid off debts of 500 residents in his home village of Donji Vinjani.
