Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has received a one-game Champions League ban after UEFA found him guilty of improper conduct.

The Portuguese manager, who won last year’s Champions League title with Inter Milan, was deemed to have instructed Real players Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos to deliberately incur second bookings against Ajax last week.

The second yellow cards for both players meant that, while they would be suspended for their final group game, their previous cautions would be wiped out heading into the Champions League knock-out stages.

Mourinho received a 40,000 euro fine and two-match touchline ban for his part in the controversy, with the second game suspended for three years, and will watch his side’s final Group G match against Auxerre next week from the stands.

The controversial tactics also incurred the club a 120,000 euro fine, while Alonso and Ramos received 20,000 euro fines.

Goalkeepers Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek, who were accused of passing on the message to the players, received 10,000 and 5,000 euro fines respectively.
