Milan needed a win to secure a Champions League spot, while Roma were pushing for the Europa League.

But the Rossoneri went down to 10 men five minutes before half-time after a foolish moment from Muntari.

Referee Gianluca Rocchi booked Mario Balotelli for a late tackle, but Muntari protested and was shown the yellow card.

The Ghanaian, though, held the referee's wrist and refused to let go until his teammates separated him from the official, who produced the red card.

Both teams ended up finishing the game with 10 men, as Francesco Totti was also dismissed late on.

"Muntari really shouldn't be doing things like this," Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said after the game.

"It is important for a team to have all 11 men on the field. We need to stay calm."
