Mourinho, Vilanova cleared for Super Cup
Jose Mourinho and Tito Vilanova will be able to lead their respective teams in the Spanish Super Cup after their bans were lifted.
The two coaches were set to remain on the stands after an incident in the last Super Cup, but have received amnesty from the President of the Spanish Football Federation Angel Maria Villar.
Mourinho and Vilanova were suspended for two games and one game, respectively, after the Portuguese coach approached the Barcelona team bench and poked his finger in Vilanova’s eye, who retaliated by pushing him.
"This is an amnesty for all Spanish football, not just for particular people,” said Villar.
“In reality it's a pardon, something I've been doing for 24 years, apart from a time when the Spanish Supreme Sports Council wouldn’t allow me to for various reasons.
“I've always done it when Spain has won something or when I have been re-elected as president, so I hope that we'll have the Spanish National team winning Euro 2012."
Real Madrid players Marcelo and Mesut Ozil, as well as Barcelona’s David Villa were sent off during that match but they have also been cleared to take part in the upcoming clash.
