Bodø/Glimt coach suspended from Roma game for tunnel brawl


NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Norwegian soccer club Bodø/Glimt will be without its coach when it plays Roma on Thursday in the Europa Conference League quarterfinals. UEFA dismissed an appeal by Bodø/Glimt against a suspension imposed on coach Kjetil Knutsen. He is being investigated for an alleged brawl in the tunnel after the first leg.  Bodø/Glimt beat Roma 2-1 last Thursday with an 89th-minute goal. Club officials later clashed in the tunnel. Roma’s goalkeeping coach is also suspended for the second leg while under investigation by UEFA.
