Philippe Mexes banned for four games
Rome: AC Milan central defender Philippe Mexes was banned for four games Monday after punching Juventus` Giorgio Chiellini in a Series A clash in Italy`s Turin city Sunday.
The Rossoneri centre-back`s violence went unnoticed by the match officials, but was captured by TV, according to which the Italian football authorities decided to hand him a retrospective four game suspension.
Chiellini had complained about Mexes` assault and demanded him to be punished.
