UEFA has charged City manager Pep Guardiola with improper conduct after he was sent to the stands during Tuesday’s Champions League second leg at the Etihad Stadium.
Guardiola marched onto the pitch at the break to remonstrate with referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz after a Leroy Sane goal that would have put his side 2-0 up was contentiously disallowed and was told to sit in the stands for the second half.
Meanwhile, European football’s governing body has charged Liverpool after fireworks were let off in the away end, and they face a further charge over the throwing of objects.
UEFA said its control, ethics and disciplinary body would deal with the cases on May 31.
Meanwhile, Greater Manchester Police said two men, aged 23 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of assault outside the Etihad Stadium and given a fixed penalty notice.
Police have not received any complaints about a video that appeared to shown fans fighting in the stands, but are looking into the matter.
