Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been charged with improper conduct after being sent to the stands in Tuesday s 2-1 Champions League defeat by Liverpool, UEFA said on Wednesday.
Guardiola protested about forward Leroy Sane s disallowed goal at the end of the first half in the quarter-final second leg and was dismissed by referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz.
The Spanish manager was charged for communicating with the team s technical staff in the second half according to Article 69(1) of UEFA s Disciplinary Regulations.

The case will be heard by UEFA s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on May 31.
