Mourinho banned for eye gouge

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has been handed a two-match ban for his role in the brawl that marred the Spanish Supercopa second leg against Barcelona in August.

During the incident Mourinho appeared to jab a finger in the eye of Barcelona assistant Tito Vilanova, who was handed a one match ban by the RFEF for his involvement.
