Cristiano Ronaldo Banned From 5 Matches In Spain. The awaiting World’s Best was sent packing in last night El-clasico against Barcalona in New Camp.
The five matches ban include one for the red card office and four for pushing the referee. Cristiano Ronaldo has also been fined with €3,000 for the offenses he committed.
According to the referee, De Burgos Bengoetxea, wrote that Cristiano Ronaldo pushed him gently to show his dissent after being shown the red card.
In response to the ban, Real Madrid’s Coach Zinedine Zidane, said;
“As always, I’m not going to get involved in discussing the work of the referee,” Zidane said.
“We played a great game, but what annoyed me was Cristiano Ronaldo’s dismissal.
“Maybe there’s no penalty, but to show a card [for alleged diving] was a little harsh.
However, we cannot change that, even if we’ll try to have him available for Wednesday.”
