Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:24 pm

Cristiano Ronaldo has been given a five-game suspension following his red card in Sunday's Supercopa. Ronaldo pushed referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea as he left the field.

A statement released on Monday 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 €1,400 fine for the club and a €3,005 fine for the player.”

Ronaldo has 10 days to appeal the ruling.
