UEFA charges Simeone and Alonso
UEFA has announced that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone and Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso following the Champions League final last Saturday.
Simeone faces action after his "dismissal from the bench" while UEFA cites a "breach of general principles of conduct" regarding Alonso.
Atletico's Simeone confronted Real defender Raphael Varane during extra time of his side's 4-1 loss in Lisbon, before being reprimanded by the referee for his actions.
Simeone's case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on July 17.
UEFA does not provide specifics of Alonso's charge, although footage has shown the Spaniard, who was suspended for the final, leaving his seat and running along the touchline.
Both sides have also been charged for receiving more than five yellow cards each.
