Inter have confirmed that they will be suspending the forward Gervininho for Sunday night’s Serie B clash with Frosinone.
The 28-year-old midfielder, who scored the decisive goal in the last round of the Champions League last term, will miss the game after he was seen to push referee Francesco Pellegrini.
According to his agent, Roberto Cavallari, Gervini will now be sidelined until Saturday’s league game against Fiorence, which he was scheduled to join as a substitute in the 3-2 victory over Lazio.
However, the former Manchester City and Juventus man is expected to return to training on Sunday.
“Gervinho has a medical, he is fine,” Cavallariso told Mediaset Premium.
“He will return to action after Saturday’s game against Frosina.”
Frosinones boss Giovanni Caponi has stated that he wants Gervino to make up for his performance against Lazio, which resulted in a 1-1 draw.
“I think he was not punished for the goal [against Fiorendina],” Caponi told reporters on Friday.
“The referee was not satisfied with his actions.
He has not had any contact with him.
I have to wait and see how the situation develops.”
Giuseppe Festa was in charge of Fiorene’s 2-0 win over Lazios in Rome on Thursday.
