Friday January 16th, 2015

The ban comes after Moyes' climbed into the stands after being dismissed for arguing an offside call during Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Villareal in the Copa Del Rey.

Moyes' was suspended one match for being sent off and one match for his trip into the stands. From The BBC:

"I shouldn't have argued with the referee but I thought both of the decisions were incorrect," Moyes said earlier on Friday.

"But I left the dugout and I went to watch the game in the stands. I am a football supporter as well and I wanted to watch the game with the supporters.

"I've been a supporter all my life. I go to a lot of football games and I thought the supporters were very good."

While in the stands, Moyes, 51, sat down and accepted potato chips from a nearby fan.

Real Sociedad (4-7-7) currently sits in 12th place in La Liga. Moyes in his his first year with the club following his brief stint with Manchester United, who sacked him in April.
