El Clasico: Furious Ronaldo pushes referee after receiving red card vs. Barcelona
He could face further suspension as a result
Cristiano Ronaldo received a red card during Sunday's El Clasico against Barcelona, but the Real Madrid star didn't really deserve one for all that happened before the card was given. He was (rightfully) booked for taking off his shirt during a goal celebration,. The second yellow came two minutes later when the referee thought he dove inside the box, which actually didn't look like much of a dive.
As you can imagine, Ronaldo was livid, and what happened next could result in a lengthy ban. The Portuguese attacker pushed the referee before exiting the pitch, giving him a little shove on the back and receiving a stern look from the official. Take a peek:
Yeah, you can't do that. Ronaldo will likely be written up in the ref's post-match report, and a longer suspension could be coming soon. Not smart, Ronnie.
Surely it has nothing to do with his ouster being spearheaded in America, right?
