Seko Fofana sent off as Udinese crash to Inter Milan

The Cote d'Ivoire international was given his marching order for the third time in his career following a late challenge on Ivan Perisic

Seko Fofana was sent off in Udinese’s 4-0 thrashing by Inter Milan in Sunday’s Italian Serie A encounter.

The 22-year-old got his marching order three minutes after the restart for a late challenge on Ivan Perisic, with referee Paolo Silvio Mazzoleni needing to consult with the Video Assistant Referee.

Andrea Ranocchia, Rafinha, Mauro Icardi and Borja Valero efforts handed the visitors the maximum points in the tie.

The midfielder's expulsion against the Nerazzuri makes it his third in his career. He saw his first red card when he represented France during the UEFA Under 17 championship in 2012 against Italy and the second came in 2016 while playing for Bastia in a French Ligue 1 outing versus Montpellier.

Manager Igor Tudor will have to do without the services of the ex-Manchester City player for the last two games of the season against Hellas Verona and Bologna on May 13 and 20 respectively.

The former Fulham man has been a consistent figure for the Dacia Arena outfit this season, featuring in 26 league games and scoring twice.

Udinese are now winless in their last 14 top-flight games which have seen them drop to the 17th spot with one place and one point above the relegation zone.
