Ronaldo Handed 5 Match Ban For Pushing Referee

Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for five matches for pushing the referee after he was shown a red card against

Barcelona in Real Madrid’s 3-1 Spanish Super Cup first leg victory on Sunday, the Spanish Football Federation said

on Monday (August 14).

Upset by referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea’s decision to dismiss him, Ronaldo shoved the official, which landed

him in further hot water.

The Spanish Football Federation issued Ronaldo with a 3,005 euro ($3,543.20) fine and a four match suspension in

addition to the automatic one game ban the player was due to serve for his red card.
