Cristiano Ronaldo Could Be Banned Up To 12 Matches For Pushing Referee

Real Madrid super star, Cristiano Ronaldo could face a lengthy ban after he reacted angrily to being sent off during his side’s victory over Barcelona.

The attacker had just put Real ahead in the 80th minute only to be shown a second yellow card two minutes later.
Ronaldo’s first booking was for ripping off his shirt in celebration and the referee brandished the second after the Portugal international went down under a challenge from Samuel Umtiti in the box.
The referee, Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea, decided Ronaldo had dived and issued the goalscorer with his marching orders with Real 2-1 up with eight minutes to play.
Ronaldo was furious with the decision and shoved the referee as he left the pitch in frustration.
Bengoetxea included the incident in his report and Ronaldo could now miss between four and 12 games through suspension.
Bengoetxea said in his report;
‘Player: Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro. Once the red card was shown, the player pushed me slightly in a sign of disagreement,’
Article 96 of the Spanish federation’s rule book deals with players who show ‘slight violence’ to officials with a ‘grab, push or shake’ and recommends a ban between four and 12 games.

The Spanish federation’s competition committee will now decide Ronaldo’s fate with a ban in the Super Cup extending to La Liga games as well.
