Cristiano Ronaldo Slams Exaggerated And Ridiculous Ban

Ronaldo’s after goal posture that earned him the first yellow card

Ronaldo’s after goal posture that earned him the first yellow card

Ronaldo was handed the ban after he pushed the referee following being sent off during the 1-3 win over Barcelona in Spanish Super Cup first leg on Sunday, reports Efe.

The additional four games he will miss are for are for shoving the referee, Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea, in reaction to the red card.

However, there was to be another twist to the tale.

The Spanish football federation tribunal was unconvinced by the excuse and the five-match ban remains in place.

Ronaldo wrote on his Instagram account this morning that "it is impossible to remain silent in this situation, 5 games!" Five matches! It seems to me excessive and ridiculous.

After Christiano Ronaldo scored an exceptional goal (the second of Real Madrid's 3 goals) in the 3-1 win over Barcelona at Camp Nou stadium, he was handed his first yellow card for pulling off his shirt.

Madrid appealed the suspension and the RFEF committee will respond on Wednesday morning, meaning Ronaldo could feature in the second leg on Wednesday at the Bernabeu.

There's really no question that Real Madrid have one of the best young strikers in the world in 21-year-old Marco Asensio.

He was given a one-match ban for two yellows and a further four for pushing the referee after he had been sent off.

Those come in the form of Deportivo, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad.

As of quarter end Susquehanna International Group, Llp had disposed of a total of 33,945 shares trimming its stake by 76.8%. Finally, ValuEngine raised Seadrill Partners from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a report on Thursday, July 27th.

All of them will play their second leg against Barcelona and they will try to get the match as they did in the first leg.

When asked to clarify his stance, the Frenchman said: 'I've been very clear in my answer.

Madrid made an official appeal to see the punishment reduced or removed but the single judge dismissed the appeal this morning and that makes the five match ban still viable.

Madrid fan groups have planned a "panolada" white handkerchief protest for Wednesday's second leg in protest at what they see as unfair refereeing suffered by their club in recent years.
