Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for five matches after pushing the referee following his red card in Sunday’s Clasico.

The Spanish Football Federation have now delivered their verdict on the incident, with a five-game ban and fine handed out.

A statement released by the RFEF read: “On the first account, Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo will be suspended for one game after receiving two yellow cards, the first for taking off his jersey while celebrating his goal and the second for simulation. The club have also been fined €350 and the player €800.

“On the second account, Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for another four games for infraction of article 96 of the disciplinary code, with a €1400 fine for the club and a €3005 fine for the player.”

As things stand, Ronaldo will now be forced to sit out the return date of the Super Cup clash with Barca in Madrid on Wednesday. He will also miss La Liga fixtures against Deportivo La Coruna, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad. Madrid do, however, have 10 days in which to appeal the ruling.

Should the five-match ban stand, the 32-year-old will not play for Real Madrid until September 19 or 20 when the champions host Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.
