(Reuters) – Torino defender Ola Aina has been banned for three games after being sent off in stoppage time during their 3-2 home defeat to Bologna, Serie A’s disciplinary committee said on Tuesday.

The Nigeria international, who is on loan from Chelsea, was banned for one match for receiving five yellow cards. He received a further suspension for showing an “intimidating attitude” towards the referee in Saturday’s defeat to Bologna.

Torino are eighth in the standings and travel to 10th-placed Fiorentina on March 31 after the international break.
