Barcelona coach Koeman banned for two games after expulsion


Barcelona, ​​the Spanish first division football club, said that the competitions committee of the Spanish Football Federation imposed a two-match ban on coach Ronald Koeman after he was sent off during his team’s 0-0 draw with Cadiz last Thursday.
The suspension means Koeman is deprived of being with his team’s substitutes on the touch line in two matches, the first of which will be on Sunday against the guest Levante and the second next week at Atletico Madrid.
Dutchman Koeman was sent off in the last seconds of the match for objecting after Sergio Busquets hit a second ball on the field in the body of one of the Cadiz players in order to stop the match.

Barcelona, ​​which is seventh in the Spanish league with seven points from five matches, said it would appeal the suspension in order to reduce it to one match, according to “Reuters”.

And increased pressure on Koeman after the decline in Barcelona’s results, and doubts surround his future.

Before Thursday’s match, Barcelona president Joan Laporta offered his support to coach Koeman, but he also called on him to provide better performance and results.
