Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has been banned for four matches following his angry reaction to being sent off against Udinese on Sunday.

The 28-year-old, Serie A’s top scorer with 30 goals, was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 3-1 defeat at Stadio Friuli.

Higuain pushed the referee before his team-mates removed him from the pitch.

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has been banned for one game “for challenging the work of the match officials”.

Higuain’s will miss second-placed Napoli’s matches against Hellas Verona, Inter Milan, Bologna and AS Roma.

Napoli are six points behind leaders Juventus with seven games of the season remaining.
