Cristiano Ronaldo banned for 5 matches

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has been given a five match ban after pushing the referee following his red card in Sunday’s El-Clasico.

Ronaldo reacted angrily to being dismissed during the second half of a 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

The Portuguese forward was first 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 in April.
A second booking followed for diving, under pressure from Samuel Umtiti, and Ronaldo did not take the decison of match official, Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea lightly.
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.”
