Calendar of FC Barcelona

Ronald Koeman was expelled with red direct by Pablo González Strong against the Granada after a desconsideración to the fourth referee. The referee of the meeting did not doubt in commanding to the street to the trainer of the FC Barcelona​, that the past Friday knew his punishment. The Committee of Competition decided to sanction to the technician of Zaandam with two meetings without seating in the bench.

As it collected the record of the Asturian referee, andl míster barcelonista said him to his assistant "go character". "After having been warned by his observations, directed again to the fourth referee in the following terms: 'it Go character'", wrote. By these words, the ex seleccionador of Holland finish seeing the rest of the duel in the changing room and also witnessed Valencia-Barça from the terracing.

But the club thought that the sanction imposed to his technician was too severe and therefore it decided to present a resource to the Committee of Appeal of the Real Spanish Federation of Football to recess it and that it could be in the following crash. The Barcelona expected that the resource allowed him be against the Athletic of Madrid in the Camp Nou this Saturday to the 16:15 hours, but has not had luck.

Appeal has desestimado this attempt and has ratified the punishment of two crashes without directing to the team that imposed him Competition. Therefore, the Dutch will see again the duel in the terracing and Alfred Schreuder, his second trainer, will be the one who commission to exert his functions during the meeting. The Dutch already did it in front of the Valency in the past day, by what already knows what is to work without Koeman.

Nevertheless, in the Barcelona do not go to surrender and in 'Sportive World' signal that already it has decided present a new resource for 'save' to Ronald. In this case, it would be one in front of the Court of Sportive Arbitration to request a cautelar to suspend the sanction until finalising the procedure. This would allow him to the ex seleccionador of Holland train to his this Saturday.

It will be complicated that they suspend him the sanction

It is necessary to stand out that the punishment to the technician has to to the Article 117 of the Disciplinary Regulation, that speaks of "attitudes of despise or desconsideración to the referees, directors or sportive authorities". Although "it go character" was not a properly said insult, yes can consider a despise to the fourth referee, by what will be very complicated that it suspend him the punishment.
