Nyon - UEFA has suspended coach Andre Villas-Boas for Zenit St. Petersburg's Europa League return match against PSV Eindhoven on Thursday.

UEFA says Villas-Boas was sanctioned for "dissent against the referee," Paolo Tagliavento of Italy, during Zenit's 1-0 win in the Netherlands last week.

Villas-Boas cannot contact his players at the stadium or watch the last-32, second-leg match from the touchline dugout.

UEFA says it also fined the Russian club $6 800 after fans lit fireworks at the match.
