NYON, Switzerland (AP) - UEFA has banned Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc for one game after being blamed for three Champions League matches kicking off late.

Blanc will be prevented from entering the dressing room or sitting on the pitch before or during the Feb. 18 match at Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16 of the Champions League.

As well as Blanc’s punishment for improper conduct, PSG has also been fined 10,000 euros ($13,600).

The decisions by UEFA’s control and disciplinary body can be appealed.
