Real Madrid star forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been handed a five-game ban following his red card in Monday night’s Supercopa first-leg victory over Barcelona, the Spanish football federation has announced.

A statement released on Monday by the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (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 has also been fined EUR 350 and the player EUR 800.

The Portuguese forward reacted angrily to being dismissed during the second half of a 3-1 victory for Zinedine Zidane’s side, pushing the referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea as he left the field.

“On the second account, Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for another four games for infraction of article 96 of the disciplinary code, with a EUR 1,400 fine for the club and a EUR 3,005 fine for the player.” Real Madrid and Ronaldo have 10 business days to appeal against the ruling, the RFEF added.
