NYON, Switzerland (AP) UEFA has banned Chelsea captain John Terry for three European club matches over his red card against Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals.
Terry sat out Chelsea's victory in the final against Bayern Munich to serve a mandatory one-match ban.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel has added two more matches, after ruling that Terry was guilty of violent conduct when he struck his knee into the back of Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.
Terry is ineligible for the Super Cup match against Europa League winner Atletico Madrid in August, plus Chelsea's first Champions League group-stage match in September.
Terry and Chelsea can challenge the sanction at UEFA's appeals panel.
