Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has received a five-match ban after insulting the referee in the match against Celta in the King’s Cup.
Ramos was sent off in the 73rd minute after receiving a second yellow card for his foul on Celta’s Augusto Fernández.
The ban breakdown is one match as a direct result of the double yellow card, and the extra four are for the abuse he directed at the referee.
Sergio Ramos tweeted that “he hopes an equal treat to the referees that make mistakes”.
Madrid’s famously hot-headed and rather impetuous central defender already holds the club record for cautions and direct red cards.
