UEFA touchline ban for Man City boss Pellegrini

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has received a three-game Uefa touchline ban, one suspended for two years. The Chilean's ban starts with his team's round of 16 second leg against Barcelona in Spain on 12 March.

A Uefa statement reads: "This means that Pellegrini may follow the game from the stands only; he may not enter the dressing room, tunnel or technical area before or during the match."

Pellegrini was charged by Uefa following the 2-0 first leg loss to Barcelona after which he criticised the impartiality of Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson.
