Wenger, Nasri and Jordan suspended for one match

UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body has handed down one-match bans to Arsenal FC's Arsène Wenger and Samir Nasri and to Tottenham Hotspur FC assistant manager Joe Jordan.

Arsenal FC manager Arsène Wenger and midfield player Samir Nasri have both been suspended for one UEFA club competition match following charges of improper conduct relating to the English team's UEFA Champions League game against FC Barcelona in Spain on 8 March.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body today decided to suspend Wenger and Nasri for one European match each, with the punishment applying to the next UEFA club game for which either man will be eligible. The Arsenal manager has also been fined €10,000.

UEFA had opened disciplinary proceedings against the pair following the north London side's round of 16 second leg in Barcelona. An appeal may be lodged against the ruling within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.

The Control and Disciplinary Body has also imposed a one-match ban on the Tottenham Hotspur FC assistant manager Joe Jordan following incidents that took place at their UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg against AC Milan in Italy on 15 February.

In Jordan's case, the punishment applies to Tottenham's next game in the competition – the English team's quarter-final first leg on 5/6 April. As with the Arsenal decisions, an appeal can be made.
