Bayern's Rafinha gets 3-match ban

Rafinha was dismissed for raising his hand to Henrikh Mkhitraryan during Bayern's defeat.

Schaaf: Pep tinkering backfires

Rafinha was sent off in injury time after he raised his hand to Henrikh Mkhitaryan as Bayern slumped to a second consecutive Bundesliga loss.

Bayern’s sporting director, Matthias Sammer, said referee Felix Zwayer’s decision had been “too harsh,” but the DFB’s disciplinary committee supported the official and handed the Brazilian a three-match suspension.

A statement on the Bayern website on Monday read: “Rafinha and the club have accepted the decision.”

The 28-year-old will miss all but one of Bayern’s remaining Bundesliga matches but remains eligible for Wednesday’s DFB-Pokal semifinal against second-tier club Kaiserslautern.

Rafinha, who won only his second cap for Brazil in their 5-0 friendly victory over South Africa in March, is hoping to be part of the Selecao squad for this summer’s World Cup on home soil.
