Hiddink faces six-game ban

Anzhi Makhachkala coach Guus Hiddink faces a six-match ban after he pushed the fourth official during his side’s 2-1 defeat at Dinamo Moscow on Friday.

Hiddink pushed fourth official Roman Chernov on the shoulder following the late penalty award.

Dinamo won the match courtesy of Andriy Voronin’s penalty deep into injury time after Anzhi, down to ten men from the 33rd minute when Ewerton was dismissed, looked to have rescued a point through Christopher Samba’s late equaliser.

Hiddink, angered by the penalty award, which came after Marko Lomic’s cross had struck Mehdi Gonzalez’s arm, lightly pushed fourth official Roman Chernov in frustration.

Russian Football Union (RFU) rules stipulate that those guilty of an “intentional push” on a match official be suspended for six matches.

The referee, Sergei Karasev, is reported to have told Hiddink he made a mistake in awarding the spot kick and apologised to the Dutchman, who added: “And I have apologised for the push on the fourth official.”

Hiddink also said he had no issue with the red card for Ewerton.

"We made a mistake in defence and were reduced to ten men and it influenced the play a great deal," he said. "I have no doubts that it was a fair decision.”
