The Spanish Football Association’s competition committee has imposed a two-day ban on Dutch manager Ronald Koeman, who was sent off during his team’s game against Cadiz on Thursday.
The disqualification prevents Koeman from staying with his team’s substitutes on the sideline in two games, the first of which on Sunday against host Levante and the other next week at Atlético Madrid.
Dutchman Koeman was sent off in the closing seconds of the match for opposition after Sergio Busquets hit a second ball on the pitch in the body of one of the Cadiz players to stop the match.
Barcelona, seventh in the Spanish league with seven points in five games, he said he will appeal the disqualification to reduce it to one game.
