Attilico de MadridTOOnly surpassed by the 10 parties with which Pepe was punished
La sanction of eight games imposed on Diego Costa by the Competition Committee is the second most serious of the 21st century against a footballer.The hardest so far is still Pepe's. The Portuguese defender was punished with 10 games for assaulting the opposing player Javier Casquero and insulting the fourth referee during the Real Madrid-Getafe match of the 2008-09 season.
Another of the most important punishments of the last years was the football player's taxDani Bentezwhen he played in Granada. The forward threw a bottle to the referee Clos Gmez during the game Granada-Real Madrid, hitting him in the face. That action cost him a three-month sanction. However, with the season, about to conclude, only missed a meeting.
The most forceful sanction of the history in Spanish competition is still the one imposed on the player of the Zaragoza Cortizo by an action on the red and white Cllar in which he fractured the leg. The punishment was 24 suspension matches.
