Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a suspended one-match touchline ban from European competitions after a late kick off in their Champions League semi-final against Ajax Amsterdam, UEFA said on Friday. Pochettino's punishment -- deferred for a probation period of one year -- means the Argentine will be on the touchline when Tottenham face Liverpool in an all-English Champions League final on June 1 in Madrid.

UEFA also fined Spurs 10,000 euros ($11,170) for the offence, while charges against the north London club also included "improper conduct of officials". UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body also warned Ajax coach Erik ten Hag for his involvement in the late kick-off in London.

Meanwhile, Barcelona was fined 20,000 euros for "insufficient organisation" during their 1-1 group stage draw with Spurs at Camp Nou in December last year. Ajax were hit with a fine of 52,500 euros by UEFA after being found guilty of crowd disturbances, throwing of objects and blocked stairways in their Champions League quarter-final home leg against Juventus last month. ($1 = 0.8951 euros)
