Just In: Ronaldo gets 5-match ban for pushing El Classico Referee

Portuguese Captain and Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed with a 5-match ban for losing his cool after receiving a second yellow for an an alleged diving offence during the season’s first El Clasico at the Nou Camp.

An angry Ronaldo believed he was roughened up by Barcelona’s Umtiti and was pulled down contrary to the verdict of the referee, who had earlier awarded a controversially-soft penalty to give the Catalan’s for an equalizer in the thrilling Spanish Super Cup match.

His first yellow was a silly one though, pulling his shirt after scoring a superb curler to give Madrid a much deserved 2-1 lead after a fast break. Madrid went on despite Ronaldo to win the first led 1-3. The return leg is fixed for Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid.
