UEFA’s Control and Disciplinary Body has rendered its verdicts on the proceedings relating to the UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg between Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona.
Madrid coach José Mourinho, who was dismissed from the bench in the first leg and made an inappropriate statement at the post-match interview, has been suspended for the next five UEFA club competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible. The suspension includes the one-match ban for the match following the coach’s dismissal, which was served for the return leg in Barcelona on Tuesday. The fifth match suspension is for a probationary period of three years. Mourinho also known as “The Special One” has also been fined €50,000.
Madrid defender Pepe, who was sent off in the first leg, has been suspended for one UEFA competition match. However, as he did not take part in the second leg in Barcelona, he is considered to have served this suspension. Real Madrid have also been fined €20,000 for the improper conduct of their supporters.
Meanwhile FC Barcelona goalkeeper José Pinto, who received a red card in the first leg match in Madrid, is suspended for three UEFA competition matches, and having already served a one-match ban for the return leg, will now also be suspended for the UEFA Champions League final on 28 May and the next UEFA club competition match for which he is eligible.
Appeals may be lodged within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decisions. Report by UEFA.com
