Real Madrid captain and defender, Sergio Ramos has been suspended for two games by UEFA’s disciplinary board.
The 32 year old defender was initially going to be suspended just for the return match of the Champions League round of 16 second leg fixture against Ajax — having accumulated five yellow cards in the competition– but the disciplinary board of UEFA judged the card he picked in the first leg as a deliberate foul.
Sergio Ramos was caught on camera seeking his bench’s blessings before going ahead to commit the foul just minutes before end of regulation time in the match.
Consequently, an extra match ban has been handed to the tenacious defender.
Ramos will now miss a potential UCL quarter final first leg fixture, should Los Blancos see out their return leg game with Ajax.
