Martino given one-game ban

Tata Martino will miss Barcelona’s game against Almeria after being suspended for his actions at half-time against Real Sociedad.

Martino was sent off during the interval of the 3-1 defeat at Anoeta and watched the second half of the game from the stands.

It has now been confirmed that the Competitions Committee has banned the Coach for one game, which will be Sunday’s visit of Almeria, AS has reported.

Martino was sent off for insulting La Real’s assistant coach, Txema Lumbreras. Barca will not appeal the decision.
