Barcelona appeal two-match ban for Vilanova

Barcelona say they will appeal a two-match ban
slapped on coach Tito Vilanova on Wednesday, after
he was sent from the dugout for crying foul during
their weekend win over Osasuna.
Spain's football federation (RFEF) punished the
Barca coach for protesting vehemently with the
referee during their 2-1 win over 10-man Osasuna
on Sunday, a victory ensured by a late Lionel Messi
When Vilanova was dismissed, he was shown on
television looking in disbelief at the referee, Muniz
Fernandez, and apparently asking: "Why, for calling
a foul?"
"FC Barcelona?s legal services will appeal Tito
Vilanova's two-match ban imposed by the Spanish
Football Federation?s competition committee," the
club said in a statement.
Real Madrid said they will appeal, too, after their Portuguese defender Fabio Coentrao was slapped
with an even harsher ban.
Coentrao was banned for four matches for throwing an insult at the referee from the sidelines while
he was on the bench during Madrid's shock 2-1 defeat at Getafe on Sunday.
The RFEF classed Coentrao's offence as "serious" and as a result he will miss the Super Cup return
against Barcelona.
"Real Madrid F.C. will present an appeal against the ruling by the Royal Spanish Football
Federation's Competition Committee imposing a ban on our player Fabio Coentrao for four
matches," they said in a statement.
