Guardiola Receives Two-Game UCL Ban

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has been banned for two games in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for his conduct against fellow Premier League side Liverpool.

Guardiola ,47, was given his marching orders at half-time during his side’s 2-1 loss to the Reds in what was the second leg of their quarter-final match at the Etihad Stadium on April 10 for complaining about a decision.

Liverpool went on to seal a 5-1 aggregate win over the Citizens.

Guardiola will miss one match next season, with a second game deferred for one year.
Liverpool were fined to the tune of 30,000 euros (£25,450) over crowd incidents during the quarter-finals and semi-finals.

UEFA fined the Anfield giants 20,000 euros (£17,500) for crowd disturbances, acts of damage, the throwing of objects and setting off of fireworks during the first leg against City at Anfield on 4 April and 6,000 euros (£5,200) for fans setting off fireworks and throwing objects during the second leg and a further 3,000 euros (£2,600) for use of fireworks during the semi-final second leg at Roma.
