Lazio’s Stefan Radu is to serve a four match ban for his actions after Inter were awarded a penalty in the last minute of injury time in Sunday night’s Coppa Italia quarter final at San Siro which Lazio went on to win 4-3 on penalties.

The Romanian defender “vehemently contested the decision of the referee,” by shouting at the referee and then once sent off “he pushed the referee slightly, placing his arm on the chest of the referee,” the Sports Judge’s report on the matter read.

The Sports Judge also confirmed that Inter midfielder Roberto Gagliardini will serve a one match suspension having hit the threshold to be banned for accumulating a series of yellow cards during the game.
