thumbnail Hello,

The Borussia Dortmund coach will have to watch his side's clash with Marseille from the stands following his sending off against Napoli.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has been given a one-game Champions League touchline ban by UEFA for his self-proclaimed "pathetic" behavior.

The Dortmund boss was sent to the stands during his side's 2-1 loss at Napoli, and he will need to assume a similar position when Marseilles visit Signal Iduna Park next Tuesday. 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.

Klopp later apologized for his behavior 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 Oct. 2 to discuss whether to increase the ban or hand Klopp a fine.
