UEFA imposes four-match ban on Simeone

MADRID: Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned for four games for insulting a match official following his rant at the referee during last week's Europa League semifinal, first leg against Arsenal, UEFA said on Friday.

Simeone has already served one match of the ban after watching from the stands on Thursday as Atletico beat Arsenal 1-0 in the second leg to advance to the final. He was also fined 10,000 euros ($11,942), European soccer's governing body said.
