Under-pressure Koeman banned for two matches after red card

Madrid (AFP) ‘ Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman on Friday escaped with the minimum two-match ban as punishment for his red card the previous evening when Barcelona drew 0-0 at Cadiz.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) disciplinary opted to hand the Dutchman the shortest permitted suspension after his sending off in the final minute for arguing with officials as 10-man Barcelona limped to a goalless draw.

Referee Carlos del Cerro Grande wrote in his report that Koeman was sent off for ‘protesting to the fourth official in an ostentatious manner, with his arms raised, shouting and leaving the technical area, complaining: ‘hey, the referee has to whistle, the referee has to whistle, dammit, he has to whistle’ even though he had already been warned by the fourth official to stop protesting at the referee’s decisions’.’

Ronald Koeman handed two-match touchline ban following red card during Barcelona’s La Liga match with Cadiz

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman will be banned from the touchline for two matches after being sent off against Cadiz; he will be forced to watch from the stands when Barca play Levante on Sunday, and again when they face Atletico Madrid

“In this country you get sent off for nothing,” Koeman told the press conference after the match, explaining that “it was for telling the fourth official that there was a second ball on the pitch, that he had to stop the game.”

Koeman is under pressure because Barcelona are already seven points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, although they have a game in hand, and have scored just five goals in five league matches.
