Malaga football boss in hot water after kicking off in fiery derby

MALAGA football boss Bernd Schuster could be dealt a lengthy ban after he was sent off in the fiery Andalucia derby with Sevilla on Saturday night.

The German coach came back onto the pitch after the final whistle, his side Malaga having defeated their fierce rivals 3-2, to berate the officials even more.

Schuster was shown a first yellow card by referee Gonzalez Gonzales for arguing with a Sevilla player at the end of the first half and was handed another and sent from the touchline in the 89th minute for the same offence.

But he ignored the referee’s instructions and refused to leave the pitch after the game, having to be restrained by officials and Sevilla staff.

Sevilla manager Unai Emery was caught by Spanish television cameras telling Schuster: ‘you’re a clown’, and had to be restrained by his own coaching staff.

The win, Malaga’s first of 2014, moves them up to 13th.
