What they did was uncalled for for UEFA should use Real as an example

Mourinho gets two match ban (one suspended) and the players all fined. The one match bans for Alonso and Ramos stand….so in a way the tactic worked.

The difference here, I suppose, could be if UEFA decided to take action against the coach as well. In any case, I think the key point is that while any such behaviour may well constitute a lack of respect, and could be deemed to be beneath a great club like Real, it’s not like they tried to injure anyone. Lengthy bans would surely be over the top, no?
