Dortmund boss Klopp banned for Arsenal clash

The 46-year-old has seen his Champions League touchline suspension extended after he was sent to the stands against Napoli, although the club could appeal the decision
Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp will be consigned to the stands for his side's Champions League clash with Arsenal after his touchline ban was extended for another game.

Tournament organisers Uefa had initially suspended the 46-year-old coach for one match for clashing with the fourth official during last month's 2-1 defeat by Group F rivals Napoli.

However, after reviewing the incident again on October 2, the European game's governing body have decided to double the length of the ban, meaning he will not be on the touchline for the game at the Emirates Stadium later this month.

Klopp has already publicly apologised for his antics, admitting that he behaved "like a monkey", and Dortmund could yet decide to appeal this latest ruling.

Dortmund, who routed Olympique de Marseille 3-0 at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday evening, face group leaders Arsenal in a crunch clash at the Emirates on October 22.
