Why Former Chelsea Boss, Villas-Boas Banned for Eight Games in China
AVB who once coached Chelsea has been handed a lengthy ban in Asia where he plies his trade for breaching the codes of conduct guiding football.
Andre Villas-Boas has been handed an eight-match ban by the Chinese Football Association, ruling the Shanghai SIPG coach out of making an appearance on the touchline for the remainder of the Chinese Super League season.
The Portuguese coach was handed the suspension and ordered to pay a fine of 40,000 yuan (£4,500) following his sending off during SIPG’s 1-0 win over Beijing Guoan on Sept. 22. The league season has four games remaining and ends in November.
