Jose Mourinho

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho will be banned for two matches for jabbing his finger into the eye of Barcelona's assistant coach.

Ismail angered several of his senior pros by fining rookie midfielder Hisham Ali for missing a spot-kick.

The youngster fluffed his injury time penalty during Taifa Stars’ defeat to Gymkhana.

And Ismail hit Ali with a $50 fine because Tahir Jaffer is the designated taker. understands, however, that although Ismail had told Jaffer that he was on penalty duty, he had not told any of his other players.

As such, he subsequently informed his stunned stars that he would be fining himself as well.

It is the latest odd twist in a number of tales emerging from the Taifa Stars camp suggesting Imsail is struggling to keep control of the dressing room.

Taifa Stars’ first round draft pick Hassan Rahal is understood to be unhappy at not having played any part of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Gymkhana.
