Madrid - Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has been given a five-match touchline ban in European competition for his red card and verbal outburst at the Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona, UEFA said on Friday.

Mourinho was also fined 50,000 euros ($72,650) for his behaviour by a UEFA disciplinary panel.

UEFA said Mourinho's ban included the second leg of the tie, which he has already served, while the final match would be suspended for a probationary three-year period.

That means the Portuguese coach will be banned from the touchline for the first three European matches next season.

Barcelona's reserve goalkeeper Jose Pinto was suspended for three matches after being sent off in a scuffle on the touchline at halftime of the same game.

He will miss the final against Manchester United at Wembley as a result.

Mourinho, the former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach, was dismissed in the second half of the first leg against Barcelona for his protests over the sending-off of Real midfielder Pepe for a studs-up challenge on an opponent.

After the match, Mourinho belittled the achievements of his counterpart Pep Guardiola and suggested there was a conspiracy among referees to favour the Catalan club, citing its links with UNICEF.

Real Madrid lost the match 2-0 at the Bernabeu and were eliminated after a 1-1 draw in this week's return, when Mourinho's place on the touchline was taken by assistant Aitor Karanka.

Pinto also served the first match of his ban in this week's second leg.

Real were fined 20,000 euros ($29,060) for the improper conduct of their supporters.

UEFA did not add to the minimum one-match ban for Pepe.
