Cholo Banned For 8 Matches

25 Aug

Diego Simeone Atlético MadridAtletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned for eight matches by the RFEF after being sent off during the second leg of the Super Copa.

Cholo is noted for his hot temper and appeared to smack the linesman in the back of the head while he was arguing with him.

He got 4 games for his love pat on the linesman’s head, 2 games for protesting his red card, 1 game for applauding his sending-off and 1 game for remaining in the stands instead of leaving the stadium after he was sent off.

Assistant coach Germán Burgos will take the reins while Cholo has his time out in the naughty corner.

    Oh, my! Cholo and The Cannibal can meet up for churros con chocolate during matches and commiserate with each others match bans. Of course, for The Cannibal, an 8-match ban is a breeze…been there, done that…several times over!
