Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been handed a suspension for two Champions League matches by Uefa for his conduct in the defeat by Liverpool.

The 47-year-old was sent off at half-time in the quarter-final second leg at Etihad Stadium on 10 April for complaining about a decision.

Former Barcelona boss Guardiola said he "did not insult" referee Mateu Lahoz when protesting that a disallowed goal shortly before half-time should have stood.

 

He misses one match next season, with a second game deferred for a year.

Similarly, Liverpool were fined 30,000 euros (£25,450) over crowd incidents during the quarter-finals and semi-finals against City and AS Roma respectively.
