Tottenham Hotspur will have manager Mauricio Pochettino on the bench for the Champions League final after the Argentine coach was given a one-game touchline ban, suspended for a year, by UEFA won Friday.

Pochettino was sanctioned for the late kick-off of the first leg of the semi-final with Ajax, which Spurs lost 1-0, but had his ban deferred for a year-long probationary period.

The European governing body stressed “the coach is currently not suspended for any UEFA competition matches,” so can lead his team against Liverpool in the June 1 Champions League final in Madrid unhindered.

Spurs reached the showpiece match for the first time in their history with an injury-time equalizer in Amsterdam to progress on away goals against Ajax following a 3-3 aggregate draw.

UEFA also handed fines to Barcelona, Ajax, Benfica, Eintracht Frankfurt, Porto and Spurs for various offences relating to their fans or stadium organization.
