Ronald Koeman will be banned for at least two games for red card

The Dutch coach was sent off against Cadiz and could be at risk of more games

Ronald Koeman was not happy with the refereeing of Carlos del Cerro Grande against Cadiz. Barcelona drew with the Andalusians and he was sent off in the final stages for protesting about what happened when Sergio Busquets kicked an extra ball that was on the pitch towards Salvi.

“Hey, the referee has to blow, the referee has to blow, dammit, he has to blow!” yelled Koeman as reflected by the refereeing report. They also had warned him before by the fourth official about his protests and that’s why he was sent off. He will most likely get a two game ban. The maximum possibility is one month, with the rules staying “two to three games or by time, for up to a month”.

So Koeman won’t be on the bench against Levante or against Atletico Madrid. He will be able to in the Champions League against Benfica in midweek.

In the press conference he said “in this country they send you off for nothing” and that could end up with him getting an additional punishment.
