Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos On Cristiano Ronaldo’s Red Card

Until the final decision is taken, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo will be facing a two-match ban after breaking the nose of Malaga defender Mtiliga.

The majority of football’s public have criticized Ronaldo for violent conduct but some also have a different judgment as they believe that there was no intent from the player when he elbowed his opponent.

Now, as Real Madrid are pursuing their appeal, Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos has come in defense of Los Blancos’ star player, Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Cristiano had no intention of hurting the player. We [Real Madrid] believe that the punishment is unjust.

Ramos then underlined the effect that Ronaldo’s absence could have on the squad:

“There are two matches that he would have to seat out. He will be a big loss for Real Madrid. Cristiano has got the support of the entire squad and everyone thinks the same thing: he was just trying to get past the player.”

When asked to compare Cristiano Ronaldo’s elbow incident with Lionel Messi’s gesture in Barcelona’s 4-0 victory against Sevilla two weeks ago, Sergio Ramos said:

“Messi was lucky not to hit the defender [Valiente] in the face but Cristiano had the bad luck of breaking the nose of the defender [Mtiliga].”

Real Madrid will have to wait a bit more time before knowing whether they have won the case which they filed to the Appeals Committee.

According to Cristiano Ronaldo himself, the next story could be positive.

“I’m confident in the case that the club will present on my behalf and that the Committee will reduce the punishment.”
