Zidane critical of five-game ban for Ronaldo

Zidane critical of five-game ban for Ronaldo

In an Instagram post, after his failed appeal, he wrote, "It seems to me exaggerated and ridiculous, this is called persecution".

Despite Ronaldo's absence, Madrid would be eyeing its 10th Spanish Super Cup title against a comparatively weaker Barcelona which is still trying to recover from Neymar's transfer to PSG.

Cristiano Ronaldo's five-match ban will stand after an appeal was rejected by the Spanish Football Federation.

Coach Zinedine Zidane gave the hint Tuesday during a preview of the second leg of the SuperCup between the club and Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

"Thanks to my teammates for the support and the fans!".

Ronaldo was suspended for one match after being sent off during Monday's first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

After Christiano Ronaldo scored an exceptional goal (the second of Real Madrid's 3 goals) in the 3-1 win over Barcelona at Camp Nou stadium, he was handed his first yellow card for pulling off his shirt.

The send off was controversial enough when referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea adjudged he had dived trying to win a penalty eight minutes from time. We started very well, with lots of intensity from the start, playing in their half, winning the ball back there.

The judge also considered that the player violated article 96 of the disciplinary code, which forbids pushing the referee and imposes bans ranging between 4-12 matches for that action. When you see he is not going to play in five games for us, something is up. They upheld the original punishment, resulting in Ronaldo missing the second leg, as well as Real's upcoming league matches against Deportivo La Coruña, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad. It's too long for him.

Patriots rookie Derek Rivers reportedly may have season-ending injury
The Patriots like their defensive ends to be versatile and these players, given their age, don't seem to be a good fit. Shea McClellin also saw some time on the edge when he was with the Bears prior to joining the Patriots last season.

"Now La Liga begins and it's going to be more hard", World Cup victor Zidane said on Madrid's website.
