Parma midfielder Domenico Morfeo has been banned for five matches following his sending off against Reggina.

Morfeo was red carded for hitting out at Carlos Paredes and he reacted to the sending off by confronting the referee.

It was Morfeo's second dismissal of the season and the Italian Football Association have decided to come down hard on the former Internazionale man.

Morfeo will miss the games with Sampdoria, Siena, Cagliari, Milan and Lazio.

The news is a blow for struggling Parma as they look to climb away from trouble at the wrong end of Serie A.
