Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid will have to make do without the services of head coach Jose Mourinho for the next two games after the Spanish Football Association (RFEF) handed the Portuguese coach a two-match ban.
The former Inter tactician received his marching orders in Wednesday's 5-1 Copa del Rey win over Murcia after hitting out at referee Jose Luis Paradas Romero during the match.
The RFEF wasn't too happy with Mourinho's outburst and have decided to suspend the Real Madrid coach for the next two matches.
"Mourinho was booked for formulating observations about the referee and he has been suspended for the Sporting and Athletic matches for addressing the referee with disrespectful vocabulary - Article 117-," reads a statement on the club's official website.
Mourinho will miss this weekend's match against Sporting Gijon and the home game against Athletic Bilbao on November 23 due to the suspension.
