LOOK: Real Madrid's Ronaldo sounds off on five-match ban, says he's being 'persecuted'
Ronaldo isn't happy with the decision at all
Cristiano Ronaldo says he is being persecuted after his. The Real Madrid star was suspensed in Sunday's first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona. His appeal was rejected on Wednesday, the same day of the second leg at home against Barca. Ronaldo took to Instagram to express his displeasure as he will sit out the first four matches of the season.
"It's impossible to stay immune to this situation," he wrote. "Five games feels exaggerated and ridiculous. This is something we like to call persecution. Thank you to my teammates and fans for the support."
Calling out the league's decision makers by saying you are being persecuted is not the best avenue to go down here. That likely won't help his case. Ronaldo put his hand on the official, and that's a no-no. Time to just accept it.
