Mario Balotelli has been fined 13,700 dollars for making a provocative hand gesture towards Cagliari fans after scoring in AC Milan's 2-1 win.


It was Balotelli's eighth booking of the season which earned him a one-match suspension, which means he'll miss the home game against Torino on Saturday, the BBC reports.

The Italian league's disciplinary panel announced the penalty on the 23-year-old striker for unsporting behaviour after grabbing an 87th-minute equaliser.
