Protests earn Djukic two games

Miroslav Djukic has been handed a two-game ban, as the Spanish Football Federation confirm suspensions from the latest round of action.

The Real Valladolid Coach was dismissed during his side’s 2-1 defeat at Atletico Madrid for dissent, something that post match he was less than happy about.

As was the case with Tito Vilanova at Osasuna and Mauricio Pochettino against Athletic Bilbao, Djukic has been given a two-game ban for his actions.

Paco Herrera, who was also sent from his technical area at the weekend during Celta Vigo’s win over Getafe, has been suspended for a game, curiously because he was booked twice, rather than immediately dismissed.

Getafe defender Alexis was given a straight red in that game for lashing out at a Celta player and catching him across the face, and will serve a two-match suspension as a result.

Wakaso Mubarak’s two yellow cards against Real Betis means he misses Espanyol’s next match, but Jose Casado won’t serve a ban, after the first of his two yellows against Real Madrid was awarded instead to Chori Dominguez.
