Atletico Madrid manager, Simeone banned from Europa League final


Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, will be forced to watch the Europa League final against Marseille from the stands, after receiving a four-match European ban for insulting a referee, UEFA said on Friday.

Simeone was dismissed during last week’s 1-1 draw in the first leg of their semi-final with Arsenal, after confronting French referee Clement Turpin.

He watched Thursday’s 1-0 home win in the return leg, from the directors’ box at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Simeone will now also miss the May 16 final in Lyon and his side’s first two European matches of next season.

The Argentine has also been hit with a fine of 10,000 euros ($12,000).
