Barcelona coach Koeman suspended for two games after being sent off

MADRID: The club La Liga, Barcelona, ​​said the Spanish Football Association’s competition committee had imposed a two-match ban on manager Ronald Koeman after he was sent off during his team’s 0-0 draw with Cadiz last Thursday. The disqualification prevents Koeman from staying with his team’s substitutes from the sideline in two games, the first of which is Sunday’s match against Levante and the second next week at Atletico Madrid. Dutchman Koeman was sent off in the closing seconds of the match for arguing 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. And the pressure on Koeman increases after Barcelona’s results drop, and doubts surround his future. Before Thursday’s match, Barcelona president Joan Laporta offered his support to manager Koeman, but also called on him to provide better performances and results. (Reuters)
