UEFA sanctions Sergio Ramos with two matches
UEFA has decided to sanction Sergio Ramos with two games because he considered that he forced the yellow in the first leg of the round of 16 against Ajax to not play the return against the Dutch and get clean rooms. "Seeing the result would lie if I said no, it's something I had in mind and it is not to underestimate the opponent or think that the tie has been over, in football you have to make complicated decisions and I have decided that way" he recognized after the game white defense. Some statements that led UEFA to initiate a disciplinary file that has ended with a double sanction.
The European organism considers that Ramos forced the admonition voluntarily, because he preferred not to play the next game. The truth is that the action is quite clear and what the Madridista does is to cut a clear and dangerous advance of the rival. The problem, surely, was in the later statements, in which he recognized in some way that he had decided to do so. He later denied it, assuring that what he had forced was the lack.
It is not the first time this happens to a Real Madrid player. Carvajal suffered the same penalty for delaying a serve with practically finished time and Xabi Alonso was also punished by forcing a card in a group phase also against Ajax.
