UEFA charges Gattuso with gross unsporting conduct

Share This Story


UEFA has charged AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso with "gross unsporting conduct" after he head-butted a Tottenham assistant coach following a Champions League match.

UEFA on Thursday specified the charge its disciplinary panel will consider at a hearing next Monday.

Gattuso could have faced an assault charge for butting Tottenham assistant Joe Jordan, a former Milan player, after the English club's 1-0 victory on Tuesday.

UEFA's disciplinary code calls for a ban of at least one European match for "unsporting conduct," but at least three for "assaulting players or others present at the match."

Gattuso is already ineligible for the March 9 return match in London after getting a yellow card for a foul.
