Turkey's Football Federation has banned Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim for nine Turkish league games for improper conduct toward the referee during a match against Mersin Idmanyurdu last weekend.

Thursday's decision bars Terim from leading Galatasaray from the touchline for six games this season and three games next season.

Terim's two assistants were given two- and one-match bans.

The Galatasaray coach was sent off on Saturday for slamming the ball on the ground in anger at the referee and for arguing with officials.
