Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned for four games for insulting a match official following his rant at the referee during last week’s Europa League semi final, first leg against Arsenal, UEFA said on Friday.
Simeone has already served one match of the ban after watching from the stands on Thursday as Atletico beat Arsenal 1-0 in the second leg to advance to the final. He was also fined 10,000 euros ($11,942), European soccer’s governing body said.
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body also fined the club 10,000 euros after fans threw objects on the pitch.
Simeone will now miss the final against Olympique de Marseille on May 16.
