Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been handed an immediate two-match touchline ban for comments about the referee after his side's Champions League loss to Barcelona.
The ref was in the wrong. Dont blame him for being pissed
The ref was wrong twice, along with the linesman...but Pellegrini is wrong for suggesting the ref was in favor of Barcelona, we can't have coaches acting like kids when their teams lose, although I do think the ban is a bit too much.
These clubs spend millions and then some ref comes and throws that all away...
It looked a stone wall penalty in real time. Refs don't have the benefit of video replays. Besides, is he going to blame the ref for Alves goal? Walked clean through on goal.
