Real Madridís Sergio Ramos Suspended for 5 Matches

MADRID Ė Spainís soccer federation imposed a five-match suspension Thursday on Real Madridís Sergio Ramos in the wake of his ejection from a Copa del Rey clash against Celta.

Besides the automatic one-game suspension for the expulsion, the defender will miss four other matches because of his abusive comments toward the officials at Wednesdayís game in Madrid, the federation said.

Ramos was thrown out in the 73rd minute after receiving a second yellow card.

The referee said in his incident report that before leaving the pitch, Ramos repeatedly called him a swine and accused him of showing bias against Real Madrid throughout the match.

Ramos directed similar insults to an assistant referee on the sideline, the chief official said.

The 26-year-old defenderís subsequent apologies on Twitter were insufficient to avoid the additional penalty, the federation said.

Ramos will be absent for both legs of Real Madridís Copa del Rey quarterfinal matchup with Valencia, as well as for three La Liga matches. EFE
