Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been handed an immediate two-match touchline ban for comments about the referee after his side's Champions League loss to Barcelona.

Pellegrini made a series of complaints about Swedish official Jonas Eriksson after his side were beaten 2-0 by the Spanish champions at the Etihad Stadium last week.

In imposing the sanction, European governing body UEFA also announced that a further one-match ban would be suspended for two years.
