Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo Banned For Two Matches After Dismissal

in Latest/Sports

CRISTIANO Ronaldo has been given a two-match ban following his dismissal for kicking out at an opponent during Real Madrid’s La Liga win at Córdoba on Saturday, the Spanish league said on Wednesday.

The Portugal forward has been suspended for Real’s next two La Liga matches, against Real Sociedad and Sevilla, but will be available for the derby with Atlético Madrid.

Ronaldo was unable to make an impact in the Córdoba match and his frustration led to him lashing out with his hand at José Crespo, which the referee missed, and then minutes later kicking out at the Brazilian Edimar for which he was sent off.

Real won 2-1 thanks to a late Gareth Bale penalty and Ronaldo apologised on Twitter after the game. – The Guardian
