The Union of European Football Associations has fined and hit Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho with a two-game ban.

UEFA found Mourinho guilty of improper conduct during his side’s 4-0 win with Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League last week.

A statement on UEFA’s official website indicated that the Real boss has been “suspended for two UEFA club competition matches, of which the second is deferred for a probationary period of three years.”

The 47-year-old Portuguese manager was also fined 40,000 Euros (52, 588 U.S.) and will miss Real’s next match against Group G rivals Auxerre, France. 

Mourinho is one of the best managers in world football today, and has been sanctioned for conspiring to get two of his own players—Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos—sent off via a strategic second yellow card during a non-bearing match against Ajax at Amsterdam Arena last week.

Both Alonso and Ramos were fined 20,000 Euros (26, 294 U.S.). Iker Casillas, who allowed Alonso and Ramos to take delayed goal kicks, was fined 10,000 Euros (13,150 U.S).
