MADRID - The coach of newly promoted
Granada will have to watch the first four La Liga matches from
the stands after being sent off in the second division play-off
final, the Spanish football federation said in a statement.
Fabriciano Gonzalez Penelas, 'Fabri', was dismissed in the
88th minute of Saturday's second leg for protesting a decision
by one of the referee's assistants, leaving his technical area,
grabbing him with both arms and entering the field of play.
Granada drew 1-1 away to Elche on Saturday to win the
play-off final on the away goals rule after having drawn the
first leg 0-0.
The Andalucian club return to the top-flight after a 35-year
absence having won consecutive promotions from the Spanish third
tier and the second divisions.
