SAO PAULO (AP) – Former Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has been suspended two matches after being sent off in a recent Brazilian league match.
Brazil's sports tribunal late Monday found the coach guilty of indiscipline when Palmeiras defeated Atletico Mineiro 3-2 in Sao Paulo on July 31.
Referee Sandro Meira Ricci sent Scolari from the touchline and accused him of inciting violence and offending the officiating crew.
Eight-time champion Palmeiras is sixth in the 20-team Brazilian league standings with 29 points, eight less than leader Corinthians. Palmeiras faces Corinthians on Sunday.
