Koeman will miss the visit of LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid next Saturday.
After being sent off in Barcelona’s 2-1 loss at home to Granada on Thursday. However, the Spanish FA (RFEF) has handed Ronald Koeman a two-match suspension.
The Dutchman’s suspension, on the other hand, begins with Sunday’s match against Valencia, his former club.
After Darwin Machis equalized for Granada at the Nou Camp, Koeman was given a red card.
The referee in his post-match report, said the Barca coach, having already been warned about his behaviour. Therefore, spoke degradingly to the fourth official, shouting “What a character” at him.
The suspension, handed down by the RFEF Competition Committee, comes under the umbrella of “acts of disparagement or thoughtlessness towards referees, directors or sporting authorities,” for which two games is the standard punishment.
Barcelona have confirmed they will appeal against Koeman’s suspension.
