Barcelona are planning to appeal Ronald Koeman’s two-game touchline suspension, which was imposed after his dismissal against Granada on Thursday.
After the Andalusian side equalized, the Dutchman was sent off in the 65th minute of the match at the Camp Nou after expressing his displeasure with the officiating.
It was another low point on a bad night for the Blaugrana, who suffered a 2-1 defeat that could be crucial in their bid to win La Liga this season, as they remained in third place and missed out on the chance to go top with just five games remaining.
According to Catalan radio station RAC1, Koeman was given a two-game touchline suspension, but Cadena Cope has now announced that the club will appeal the decision.
Koeman will now miss two crucial games for his club, the first of which is a trip to his former club Valencia at the Mestalla, followed by a match against current league leaders Atletico Madrid in the Catalan capital.
It is unclear whether the boss will be able to have the ban reduced or overturned, and he is said to have told officials, “What a character.”
