Following the opening of disciplinary proceedings concerning the improper conduct of Real Madrid CF coach José Mourinho and players Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek during the UEFA Champions League Group G game against AFC Ajax in Amsterdam on Tuesday 23 November, the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body dealt with the case today and decided the following:
The Spanish club's coach José Mourinho has been suspended from coaching activities for two UEFA club competition matches, of which the second is deferred for a probationary period of three years. He was also fined €40,000.
Players Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos were fined €20,000, Iker Casillas was fined €10,000 and Jerzy Dudek was fined €5,000. The red cards given to Alonso and Ramos stand, and they have therefore been suspended for one UEFA club competition match.
The Control and Disciplinary Body has decided to fine Real Madrid CF €120,000.
An appeal may be lodged against the ruling within three days of the dispatch of the reasoning for the decision.
The Control and Disciplinary Body will publish tomorrow the outcome of the hearing held today in relation to the case against Romanian club CFR 1907 Cluj for the improper conduct of coach Sorin Cârţu during the UEFA Champions League Group E game against FC Basel 1893 in Basel on 23 November.
