Rijkaard wants Mourinho punished

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard wants Uefa to punish Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho but does not want the Blues thrown out of the Champions League.

Chelsea could face ejection if Uefa find them guilty of making "unfounded allegations" against Rijkaard and referee Anders Frisk at the Nou Camp.

But Rijkaard said: "They shouldn't be forced out as Mourinho's attitude and that of the club are separate issues.

"My objective is that in the future these types of comments are stopped."

Uefa's Control and Disciplinary Body will hear Chelsea's case on 31 March.

The club, Mourinho, assistant manager Steve Clarke and security official Les Miles will be able to request personal hearings and, if they wish, can choose to be represented by lawyers at the disciplinary meeting in Nyon, Switzerland.

The charges are the culmination of an investigation by Uefa into events at the Nou Camp and Chelsea's subsequent allegations.

Following the match, which Barcelona won 2-1, Mourinho verbally attacked referee Anders Frisk and called for Pierluigi Collina to referee the second leg.

Frisk subsequently announced his retirement following death threats to him and his family.
