Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman handed appeal decision

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has seen his appeal against last week's suspension thrown out.

Koeman was sent off against Granada after telling the fourth official 'what a character' and missed the win at Valencia due to the suspension.

The RFEF Appeals Committee have since rejected Barca's appeal, so meaning Koeman won't be in the dugout for the weekend's massive clash with Atletico Madrid.

As such, Barca assistant coach Alfred Schreuder will again be on the touchline in Koeman's place.
