La Liga has handed Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo a five game ban for pushing a referee in the Spanish Super Cup first leg clash at the Camp Nou.
The footballer was sent off after seeing two yellow cards in the game against Barcelona; one for taking off his shirt for celebrating a goal and another for diving.
After close review of the 3 – 1 win for Los Blancos, La Liga handed Ronaldo a five game ban; one for his match red card and another four for pushing the referee.
The Portuguese will miss his side’s second leg clash at the Santiago Bernabeu and the first four games of the upcoming La Liga season.
Goals from Ronaldo, Marco Asensio and a Gerard Pique own goal gave Real Madrid a 3 – 1 win at Camp Nou despite an consolation from Lionel Messi.
