Official: Bakayoko and Kessie avoid suspension after Lazio commotion

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan duo Tiemoue Bakayoko and Franck Kessie have been hit with fines by the Sporting Judge after Saturday’s events at San Siro.

The Rossoneri’s crucial clash with Lazio was particularly heated both in the build-up and the minutes following the game, which Gennaro Gattuso’s side won 1-0.

There was both a post-match brawl and an incident involving Tiemoue Bakayoko and Franck Kessie dangling Francesco Acerbi’s shirt to mock him.

On Tuesday, the Serie A sports judge made a ruling on the incidents amid speculation that the Milan duo could possibly face suspension.

He decided to not give the midfield pair any suspensiom though, instead hitting Kessie with a €10,000 fine – the same as Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Bertolacci received for their part in the confrontation.

Lazio’s Patric, Luiz Felipe and Lucas Leiva received the same fine, but no suspensions were handed out to either side.
