Mourinho handed five-match ban

Former Inter Coach Jose Mourinho has been given a five-match UEFA touchline ban for his comments after Barcelona beat Real Madrid.

The tactician said there had been a history of referees favouring Barca in the Champions League against his sides Chelsea, Inter and Real.

His statements after the first leg of the semi-final on April 27 have cost Mourinho a five-match ban in UEFA club competition.

That includes the game he already sat out, the second leg of the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

It is technically a four-match ban with the fifth “suspended for a probationary period of three years. Mourinho has also been fined €50,000.”

Barcelona goalkeeper José Pinto received a three-match ban for his behaviour in the first leg in Madrid, which got him sent off from the bench.
