UEFA has banned AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso for four matches after he headbutted a Tottenham coach at a Champions League match.

UEFA says Gattuso assaulted Tottenham assistant coach Joe Jordan after the final whistle in Milan.

Gattuso earlier grabbed at Jordan's throat in a separate sideline clash during the round of 16 first leg match last Tuesday.

Tottenham won 1-0.

UEFA charged Gattuso with "gross unsporting conduct" and its disciplinary panel imposed the ban, on top of a one match suspension for receiving yellow cards, which already ruled him out of the March 9 return in London.

Gattuso, who captained Milan, must serve the ban in UEFA's Champions League or Europa League competitions. He can appeal within three days.
