Sergio Ramos has found himself in a very difficult situation with multiple reports claiming that a case has been filed against the Real Madrid captain for the yellow card he received against Ajax Amsterdam.
During the UCL first leg match at the Johan Cruff Arena, Sergio Ramos received a suspicious yellow card with just a minute of regulation time to play, ruling him out of the return leg in Madrid.
Many believed that the Madrid captain picked up the card on purpose in other to clear him off suspension fears leading to the Quarter Final of the UCL. Had he not picked up the yellow card, Ramos would’ve put himself at a bigger risk of missing a more integral match — having it in mind that Los Blancos will finish the job on Ajax in the return Fixture.
The tenacious Spanish defender who reached a great milestone of 600 games played for Real Madrid was caught on camera asking the Real Madrid Bench if he should pick up a card or not.
UEFA’s disciplinary committee officially opened a case against Ramos that will be looked into by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on Thursday, 28 February 2019.
When Sergio Ramos was quizzed about the incident, he defended himself by saying –
“I want to make it clear that it hurts more than anyone, I have not forced the card, as I did not against Roma in my previous Champions League match.”
