Ramos Handed Five-Match Ban

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has been handed a five-match ban by the Spanish Football Federations (RFEF).

The 26-year-old Spain international was sent off against Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night and then hurled abuse at referee Ayza Gamez.

The player received a one-game ban for the red card but it was stretched to five due to his outburst towards the referee.

The player called the referee and his assistants "shameless crooks" and accused them of giving poor decisions against Los Blancos.

The ban will start this weekend meaning that he will miss league games against Osasuna, Valencia and Getafe, as well as both legs of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals against los Che.

Gamez mentioned the incident in his post-match report, even though Ramos had apologised afterward, and RFEF have not taken the things lightly.

Pepe, Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo are all out at present, meaning Jose Mourinho's defensive woes will grow larger with the absence of Ramos.
