AC MILAN winger Ante Rebic has been banned for two games for allegedly telling a referee: "I saw your mother being a prostitute in Naples".
The Croatia star was sent off after verbally abusing ref Fabrizio Pasqua in stoppage time as Milan fell nine points behind Serie A leaders Inter with Sunday's 1-0 home loss to Napoli.
The 27-year-old will now miss his second-placed team's games against mid-table clubs Fiorentina and Sampdoria, following what informazione.it claim were personal comments about the official's mum.
But it comes just a month after Rebic showed the other side to his personality – off the field.
Having already paid off the debts of 500 villagers in his hometown Donji Vinjani in 2018, he donated £8,000 to help autistic children in Slavonski Brod.
Meanwhile, the Disciplinary Commission also fined Milan keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma 10,000 euros (about £8,558) fine for "threatening and offensive attitude" towards Napoli players.
The Italy ace, 22, has been linked with Manchester United and especially Chelsea over the past year.
And earlier this month Italian website Libero claimed the Blues were willing to pay Donnarumma £9million a YEAR – after his Milan contract expires this summer.
So unless Donnarumma agrees a new deal he could be one of the most sought-after free transfer recruits in the next window.
DALOT FORTUNES REVIVED
But there has been little to suggest the 22-cap stopper is unhappy in Serie A.
And although neighbours Inter look poised to break Juventus' nine-season title stronghold, Milan boss Stefano Pioli has turned the giants around in his second term in charge.
Milan have also helped revive the fortunes of United right-back Diogo Dalot.

The Portugal Under-21 man's impressive loan spell in Italy has prompted Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to insist Dalot will back in Manchester next season.
Solskjaer said: “Now he's kept fit all season; he's been available for them. He's playing at a big club, big expectations, great history… so it's been a good year for him.
"So of course I've been very pleased with his development this season, and he's our player and we're looking forward to having him back.”
