As if the result against Juventus in the Supercoppa wasn’t bad enough, but thanks to the cards that were handed out, Milan will have three players suspended for the match against Genoa.
Franck Kessie, Alessio Romagnoli, and Davide Calabria are now all suspended for the next match. Romagnoli, who as captain is allowed to ask questions, even got booked for “dissent” which is rather ludicrous.

So the disciplinary proceedings from a glorified friendly overseas count towards matches that actually matter? What a farce.
