Following his electrifying mixed cameo on Sunday evening, Cristiano Ronaldo has been informed of his fate and he will be suspended for five matches.
A decision wasn’t expected until Wednesday, however, the Super Cup de Espana’s legal board of trustees has chosen to hand Ronaldo a one match ban for his red-card on Sunday while a further four match suspension has been placed on top of that.
This is obviously because of Ronaldo’s push on referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea after he was awarded a second yellow-card.The Committee have likewise passed on 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 an infringement of article 96 of the Disciplinary Code, Madrid must pay an extra 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 respectively. Madrid will now request for an appeal on this decision within the following ten days.
