Atletico coach suspended for 3 games

By The Assam Tribune

MADRID, Jan 27: Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned from the touchline for three Copa del Rey matches for misconduct toward a referee in the competition.

The Spanish football federation says the suspension will be served next season since Atletico was eliminated on Tuesday.

Simeone was sent off during Tuesday�s 3-1 cup loss to Sevilla for protesting a decision by the referee, earning a one-match touchline ban.

The punishment was extended by two matches because Simeone applauded the referee in a mocking fashion when he was dismissed.

Atletico was eliminated 5-2 on aggregate in the two- legged quarterfinal. � AP
