Simeone Faces UCL Final Ban after Slapping Official

Diego Simeone angrily slapped an  official during Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final clash with Bayern Munich.

Despite a 2-1 defeat at the Allianz Arena, Atletico have reached the Champions League final where they will face either Real Madrid or Manchester City.

But with Atletico clinging onto their away-goal advantage in injury time, Simeone became involved in a heated exchange with the club’s delegate Pedro Pablo Matesanz.

Atletico were preparing to send Stefan Savic on for Koke when Matesanz began speaking to the fourth official.

Matesanz then turned to speak to Simeone but the Argentine slapped the Atletico delegate on the shoulder before shouting back at him.
