Inter Milan midfielder Radja Nainggolan has been suspended by the Italian club for “disciplinary reasons”.
It is understood the decision was taken after the former Belgium international was late for training and not for the first time.
The 30-year-old has also been fined a substantial sum of money.
He will miss the Serie A game against Napoli, who are second, at the San Siro on 26 December.
Nainggolan was dropped for a Roma match at the start of 2018 over a New Year’s Eve video in which he drank, smoked and cursed.
