Manchester United are expected to be punished by UEFA after a section of fans threw objects at Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone after Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat.

Simeone knocked United out of the Champions League and went sprinting straight down the tunnel, narrowly avoiding a barrage of bottles, cups and a whole host of other objects in the process.

Referee Slavko Vincic was also targeted by the same projectiles as he left the field, and he will now reflect on the incidents involving both himself and Simeone in his post-match report to UEFA.

The Times note that the European governing body were expecting that report on Wednesday and will soon decide whether or not to charge United.

There is a section of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations which specifically covers the throwing of objects from the crowd, with Tottenham recently hit with a fine after fans were seen throwing projectiles back in December.
