UEFA rejects new Madrid complaints on Barcelona
UEFA has rejected Real Madrid’s request to open new investigations into Barcelona players’ Champions League behavior.
UEFA says no new charges will be leveled following a bad-tempered semifinals, first-leg match last Wednesday. Barcelona won 2-0.
On Friday, UEFA’s disciplinary committee will examine six charges against both clubs, including two for Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho made offensive comments to match officials and said UEFA actively helped Barcelona reach Champions League finals.
Madrid reacted by asking UEFA to sanction Daniel Alves, Pedro Rodriguez and Sergio Busquets for feigning injuries.
UEFA also rejected Madrid’s protest against a red card shown to Pepe.
The return match is played Tuesday.
