ZURICH - Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho
will face a disciplinary hearing into his sending-off and
subsequent outburst during Wednesday's bad-tempered Champions
League defeat by Barcelona, UEFA said on Thursday.
Real midfielder Pepe and Barca reserve goalkeeper Jose
Manuel Pinto will also face hearings after being shown red cards
in the semi-final first leg, European football's governing body
said following a petulant semi-final first leg.
The Madrid club will have to explain incidents of
missile-throwing and a pitch invasion during their 2-0 defeat at
the Bernabeu, UEFA said.
Mourinho, Pepe and Pinto will all miss Tuesday's second leg
as they serve automatic one-match bans which could now be
extended by UEFA.
Pepe was sent off for a studs-up lunge at Barcelona's Daniel
Alves in the second half and Mourinho was ordered from the bench
for his complaints over the same incident.
Pinto was ordered off for his part in a scuffle at the
entrance to the players' tunnel at halftime.
UEFA said the hearing would take place on May 6.
Mourinho bitterly criticised the referee after Wednesday's
match and said Barcelona had "great power."
Mourinho has already been in trouble with UEFA this season,
seving a one-match ban over allegations that two of his Real
Madrid players engineered deliberate red cards in a group game
with Ajax Amsterdam.
