Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone hit with 3-match ban

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned for three games.

He has been suspended after being sent to the stands against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey second leg.

Simeone's was suspended for one game for being sent from the dugout by referee Martínez Munuera and another two for sarcastically clapping the referee.

As the punishment is for only three games, the suspension will be applied in the Copa del Rey, meaning it's held over to next season (provided he's coaching in Spain) and the Argentinean coach will be able to be in the dug-out against Las Palmas on Sunday.
