Following his sensationally mixed cameo on Sunday evening, Cristiano Ronaldo has been informed of his fate and he will be suspended for five matches.
A Team To Mark An Era
A decision wasn’t expected until Wednesday however the competition’s judiciary committee has decided to hand Ronaldo a one match ban for his red-card on Sunday whilst a further four match suspension has been placed on top of that.
This is of course due to Ronaldo’s shove on referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea after he was shown a second yellow-card.
The Committee have also handed down a 350 euro fine to Real Madrid and an 800 euro sanction to the player, applying articles 111.1.h), 124, 113.1 and 52 of the Disciplinary Code of the RFEF.
For a violation of article 96 of the Disciplinary Code, Madrid must pay an additional fine of 1,400 euros and the player one of 3,005 euros.
Ronaldo will miss the second leg of the Supercopa and the LaLiga games against Deportivo, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad.
