The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has slapped a one-year ban on defender Mohamed Zubya of Libyan side Al Ittihad.
Zubya was handed the ban after he tried to punch assistant referee Peter Edibe during a Champions League clash against FAR Rabat of Morocco two weeks ago.
Several players and officials Al Ittihad were also involved in the incident after a controversial injury time winner secured victory for the home side in Rabat.
Al Ittihad's Serbian coach Branko Melnitch and two other officials from the club were given a one-match ban each for bringing the game into disrepute.
The trio will miss this weekend's return leg of the Champions League encounter in Tripoli.
Caf also fined Al Ittihad US$3,000 for the incident.
The win revived FAR Rabat 's hopes of reaching the semi finals as it was their first win of the group campaign.
The Libyan side, who are second in Group A, are still favourites to advance as they are three points adrift of leaders Tunisian side Etoile, who have seven points.
FAR are bottom of the group with three points, same as JS Kabylie of Algeria.
