thumbnail Hello,

The Borussia Dortmund coach will have to watch his side's geroup-stage clash with Marseille from the stands following his sending-off in their defeat against Napoli

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has been given a one-game Champions League touchline ban by Uefa.

The Dortmund boss was sent to the stands during his side's 2-1 loss at Napoli on matchday one, behaviour which he admits was "pathetic", and will need to assume a similar position when Marseille visit the Signal Iduna Park on October 1.

The 46-year-old launched an irate tirade at the fourth official after Dortmund defender Neven Subotic was refused permission to return to the pitch at the Stadio San Paolo.

Klopp later apologised for his behaviour by saying: "I made myself look like a monkey out there and that's not on.

"I overstepped the mark and it was really pathetic of me."

Uefa has confirmed that it will meet again on October 2 to discuss whether to increase the ban or hand Klopp a fine.
