Mourinho faces 12 game ban

2011-08-23 16:12

Madrid - Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho could be suspended up to 12 games for his altercation with Barcelona assistant coach Tito Vilanova during a Spanish Supercup game-ending brawl.

The Spanish football federation opened disciplinary proceedings against the Spanish clubs on Tuesday, six days after Barcelona won the trophy in a fight-marred finale.

Mourinho walked toward Vilanova and appeared to poke him in the eye during the onfield melee between both benches.

Under federation rules, the Portuguese coach could be banned between four to 12 games while Vilanova could be sanctioned for four games after retaliating with a push.

Barcelona striker David Villa and Madrid pair Marcelo and Mesut Oezil were handed one-game bans.

      Barca should spank everyone including the Madrid team...Even at their lowest best Real fails to beat Barca...No wonder Murinho turned to a Poke-man character!
