Manchester City assistant coach David Platt has been slapped with a two-game touchline suspension by UEFA.

Platt was sent to the stands by Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi during the 1-1 Champions League draw at home to Real Madrid on November 21.

Manchester City have also been fined almost £10,000 for the improper conduct of the team after picking up five cards or more in the same match.

Platt will be banned for City's final Champions League game at Borussia Dortmund and the next European game they are involved in.

Both Platt and Manchester City have the right to appeal.
