Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has been handed a suspended one-match European competition ban, UEFA said on Friday.
Mourinho was deemed to be responsible for the late kickoff of Spurs’ Europa League match at Royal Antwerp on Oct. 29.
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body said the ban is deferred for a probationary period of one year.
Tottenham were also fined 25,000 euros ($29,565) for the late kickoff plus 3,000 euros for a breach of UEFA’s equipment regulations.
Another condition was Tottenham should “ensure their head coach is personally informed of this decision”.
Mourinho made nine changes for the 1-0 defeat in Belgium, after which the Spurs boss criticised his players and said he faced “easy choices” over future team selections.
