Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has been warned that if he doesn’t change his attitude towards the match officials, then he will get reprimanded.
Guardiola confronted the match officials twice in their 1-1 draw against Schalke a few weeks back, and those incidents have not sit well with the Referee’s Association.
Referee commissioner Herbert Fandel has warned Guardiola not to repeat that sort of behaviour, otherwise he will be watching his side from the stands in the future.
"Pep Guardiola would do well to adjust his attitude," Fandel told Sport Bild.
"With all due respect to strong emotional reactions, we crossed a line. A coach leaving his technical area to rush towards an assistant at the corner flag needs to be sent to the stands.
"The fact that he got away with a warning against Schalke should remain an isolated case.
"You cannot touch the body of a referee. Pep Guardiola should change his behaviour immediately."
At the time of the game, Guardiola dismissed the incident when asked about it straight after the game, but every move of his will be closely watched from now on.
Bayern currently sit top of the Bundesliga with 49 points, and are back in action this weekend against Hamburg.
