Ronaldo Banned For Five Matches Over Referee Shove


Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been
suspended for five matches after pushing the referee
following his red card in Sunday’s Clasico.
The Portuguese forward reacted angrily to being
shown a red card during the second half of a 3-1
victory for Zinedine Zidane’s side over Barcelona in
the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.
Ronaldo had joined the action as a substitute, helping
to put Real 2-1 in front with a typically stunning strike
at Camp Nou.
 He was booked after removing his shirt in celebration,
with the 32-year-old going on to mimic Lionel Messi’s
iconic jersey-holding celebration at the Santiago
Bernabeu from April.
A second booking followed for diving, under pressure
from Samuel Umtiti, and Ronaldo did not take too
kindly to the decision of match official Ricardo De
Burgos Bengoetxea.
The Spanish Football Federation have now delivered
their verdict on the incident, with a five-game ban and
fine handed out.
A statement released by the RFEF read: “On the first
account, Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo will be
suspended for one game after receiving two yellow
cards, the first for taking off his jersey while
celebrating his goal and the second for simulation.
The club have also been fined €350 and the player
€800.
“On the second account, Cristiano Ronaldo has been
banned for another four games for infraction of article
96 of the disciplinary code, with a €1400 fine for the
club and a €3005 fine for the player.”
As things stand, Ronaldo will now be forced to sit out
the return date of the Super Cup clash with Barca in
Madrid on Wednesday.
He will also miss La Liga fixtures against Deportivo La
Coruna, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad.
