Griezmann banned for 2 matches after disrespecting referee

MADRID (AP) Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has been suspended for two matches after he used disrespectful language when complaining to a referee about being sent off in the Spanish league.

The Spanish football federation's competition committee issued the ban on Wednesday.

Griezmann was booked twice in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Girona. The first card was for diving, the second for complaining about the decision.
