After last Thursday’s 2-1 quarter-final first-leg defeat, the Italian side’s captain Lorenzo Pellegrini said Santos had been attacked, while Knutsen accused a Roma goalkeeping coach of grabbing him by the throat.

Bodo said last Friday that they planned to report the incident to the police.

UEFA said in a statement that Knutsen and Santos would be suspended for the next UEFA club competition matches in which they would otherwise participate until its Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body decides on the merits of the case.

European football’s governing body said last week that it had appointed an ethics and disciplinary inspector to conduct a disciplinary investigation into the incidents.
