UEFA investigates Mihajlovic

S.S. Lazio's Sinisa Mihajlovic faces a disciplinary investigation for an alleged spitting offence.

S.S. Lazio defender Sinisa Mihajlovic faces a UEFA disciplinary investigation for an alleged spitting offence against a Chelsea FC player in last night's UEFA Champions League encounter in Rome.

Friday hearing
Mihajlovic is alleged to have spat at Chelsea forward Adrian Mutu in the 34th minute of the game, which the English side won 4-0. Mihajlovic was later dismissed for a second bookable offence. The allegations will be dealt with by UEFA on Friday 7 November.

Luccin ban
In January, UEFA imposed a four-match ban on RC Celta de Vigo midfield player Peter Luccin for spitting at an opponent during the Spanish club's UEFA Cup third round second-leg tie against Celtic FC last December.
