Serie A committee has confirmed on Tuesday that Ola Aina has been handed a three-match ban after being sent off in Torino’s clash against Bologna at the weekend.
The Super Eagles defender was shown two yellow cards during the 3-2 defeat.
Although he took to Instagram to apologize for his action, he was however handed a match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards in the league, while his display of “intimidating attitude” towards referee Maurizio Mariani earned him further bans.
The Nigerian has been impressive since moving to Italy in the summer, helping eighth-placed Torino to keep 10 clean sheets in 24 league appearances, and weighing with a goal.

The suspension means he will miss games against Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Parma, but should be available for the Cagliari clash on April 14.
