Guardiola handed two-game ban, Liverpool fined £17,500

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been given a two-match ban, one of which is suspended for one season, for improper conduct following his dismissal in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool in April.

UEFA has also fined Liverpool €20,000 (£17,500) following incidents in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final in April, including an attack on the Manchester City team bus as it arrived at Anfield.

Liverpool were fined a total of £7,900 for setting off fireworks in the second leg with City and the second leg of the semi-final at Roma.

Their main punishment was for the setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, acts of damage and crowd disturbances, UEFA said.

The Reds, runners-up in the tournament as Real Madrid won a 13th title in Kiev last month, condemned the “completely unacceptable” behaviour of supporters who damaged the City bus prior to the tie at Anfield.

European football’s governing body has fined Zenit St Petersburg a total of £61,476 for offences at the Europa League last-16 tie with Red Bull Leipzig.

A £43,911 fine was imposed on Zenit for “the racist behaviour of its supporters”, UEFA said, with the club ordered to play their next home game in UEFA competition behind closed doors.
