Paul Pogba's season is over after the Juventus midfielder was handed a three-match Serie A ban for spitting in his side's 1-0 win over Palermo.

Antonio Conte's men wrapped up the Scudetto against the Sicilian club in a match where Pogba was sent of after he reacted badly to a push by Salvatore Aronica.

The former Manchester United man spat at the Palermo defender to earn a straight red card in the 83rd minute.

As a result of Monday's league ruling, the 20-year-old France international will miss Juventus' final three matches of the campaign against Atalanta, Cagliari and Sampdoria.
