Pogba handed three-match ban

Turin, Italy (Sports Network) - Paul Pogba's season has been ended with news that the Juventus midfielder has been handed a three-match ban for spitting at an opponent.

The incident occurred in the Old Lady's 1-0 title-clinching win over Palermo on Sunday. Pogba spat at Salvatore Aronica seven minutes from time and was promptly shown a red card.

The suspension means that the 20-year-old will miss Juventus' final three matches of the season against Atalanta, Cagliari and Sampdoria.
