MILAN -- AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has received a four-match suspension from UEFA for his headbutt on Tottenham assistant coach Joe Jordan during the first leg of Milan's 1-0 defeat to Spurs last week.

The suspension will begin after the return leg at White Hart Lane with Gattuso already suspended for that match because of an accumulation of yellow cards.

The Italian was involved in an altercation with Jordan during the match, and he then attacked the Tottenham coach after the final whistle, claiming he had been provoked by Jordan.

Milan and Gattuso have three days to appeal the decision.
