Whistling keeper to be disciplined

A GOALKEEPER is to face a disciplinary hearing next week after whistling to stop an opponent.
During their 2-0 win over FC Copenhagen in the Champions League, Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Pinto whistled when striker Cesar Santin broke through one-on-one and the Danish club’s player stopped thinking the ref had called for offside.
Barcelona has since “strongly distanced itself from the episode that is against all principles of fair play and respect for the game and the opponent.”
Pinto could have blown his chances of appearing for a while if found guilty – he’ll face a two game Eurpoean ban as a minimum.
