Barcelona will appeal a two-game suspension handed to coach Ronalperform Koeman that will ascendancy him out of an essential clash versus Atlético Madrid in the wide-open up Spanish league title race.

Koeman was shown a red card during Barcelona’s 2-1 house loss to Granada on Thursday for his usage of what the referee thought about disrespectful language. That defeat price his team the opportunity to take the lead of the Spanish league.

The Spanish soccer federation increased the mandatory one-game ban to 2 games after reviewing the case, prompting an appeal from Barcelona.

“According to the referee report, I disrespected the assistant referee and for me that is not correct,” Koeguy shelp Saturday. “To disrespect is to insult, and also I was just commenting on several plays in a respectful manner.

“The sending off bothers me bereason it is not fair,” the Dutchguy continued. “We will need to see what happens (regarding the appeal).”

Referee Pablo González recorded in his complement report that Koeguy was shown a red card for saying to the referee assistant “what a character” after having been warned several times to watch his language. The federation’s competition committee then added a second game to the suspension on Friday night.

That would certainly save Koeguy out of the dugout for Barcelona’s match at Valencia on Sunday and next round’s game versus Atlético at Camp Nou that will straight influence the title fight.

Atlético, Real Madrid, Barcelona and also Sevilla are all in contention to win the the majority of disputed league title in years.
