The Spanish player was sent off during his team's 2-2 draw after pushing Parma's Gianni Munari before shoving the match referee.

"In the 49th minute of the second half, with the ball out of play, Borja Valero repeatedly pushed a rival player and once sent off, he put a hand on the referee's shoulder before shoving him."

Valero will miss Sunday's match against Lazio as well as his team's league games at Juventus, against Chievo and at Napoli.
