Sergio Ramos, banned for five matches

The Competition Committee of the Spanish Football Federation imposed a five-game suspension on Real Madrid player Sergio Ramos, one for the two yellow cards he saw against Celta and four for telling the referee about the match, the Valencian Ayza Gámez: "You are a shameless man". The first instance body of the Federation applied, in its minimum degree, Article 94 of its disciplinary code, that collects that “to insult, offend or address in insulting terms or attitudes to the head referee, assistants, fourth official, directors or sports authorities, unless it constitutes a more serious offense, will be sanctioned with suspension from four to twelve games”.


The referee's report left the white club with no way out. "As soon as I showed the second yellow card to the number 4 of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos Garcia, this player addressed me in the following terms: “You are a shameless man”, repeating this phrase to myself three times, y “you've been fucking with us all day”, repeating this same phrase twice. Subsequently, and when he reached the height of the benches, he addressed an assistant referee in the following terms: “always the same, what scoundrels you are”, repitiendo esta frase dos veces”, It was the collegiate's story. Competition considered insult and do not underestimate the attitude of the madridista.

Ramos will miss the league games against Osasuna, Valencia and Getafe and the two in the Cup quarterfinals, also against Valencia. However, yes you can play the semifinals, if Madrid qualifies, in which Barcelona could await him, in which it would be the fourth Clásico of the year, after the two in the Super Cup and the first in the League, disputed in the Camp Nou.

Madrid tried to get the Committee to annul the first of the yellow cards they saw against Celta, what would have freed him from a suspension match, but was unsuccessful. The Competition Judge estimates, besides, that expressing regret on social networks does not serve as a mitigating factor, so you have not taken into account the ”Tweet” with which the player apologized yesterday for his insults to the referee. The call to Sánchez Arminio was not enough either.
