Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone charged for obscene gesture vs. Juventus

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti does not hold back at Juventus' recent form, which culminated in a "cynical" display against Atletico Madrid.
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe credits Atletico Madrid for showing their mental strength by overcoming the reversed decisions made by VAR.

UEFA has charged Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone with improper conduct for an obscene gesture after his team scored against Juventus in the Champions League.

After Atletico defender Jose Maria Gimenez scored the first goal late in a 2-0 win on Wednesday, Simeone turned to his team's fans and made the gesture.

Simeone said the gesture showed he had courage to make tough selection decisions. Two days later, he apologised.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case at a later date. Simeone could be banned from a future game.

The second leg in Italy will be played on March 12.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri also faces an improper conduct charge for his team being late on the field for kick-off.
