Inter's Castaignos banned for three games


MILAN (AP) -- Inter Milan striker Luc Castaignos has been suspended for three games after spitting in an opponent's face.

Castaignos spat on Andrea Raggi, 10 minutes before the end of Inter's 3-0 loss at home to Bologna on Friday.

The incident was not seen by the referee but the league has reviewed television evidence and announced its decision Sunday.

Castaignos will miss Inter's visits to Napoli and Chievo as well as the home match against Catania.

It is a blow for Inter, which has slipped to sixth in the standings after three defeats in a row.
