UEFA charges Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos
UEFA charges Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos on Tuesday for “receiving a yellow card on purpose” In their Champions League last-16 tie with Ajax. For a tackle on Kasper Dolberg the Spaniard was booked in Real’s 2-1 first-leg victory in Amsterdam on February, After two minutes Marco Asensio scored the winning goal.
However Ramos may have seen sitting out the second match when three yellow cards brought one-match suspension against Ajax as preferable to potentially missing a match later in the competition.
As per UEFA , Ramos’ case would be dealt with today. The match that he did not “force the card”. But straight after the game, he had appeared to admit that he got himself booked on purpose said Ramos.
“The truth is that given the result I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t something I had in mind,” he had said. “It is not to underestimate the opponent but sometimes there is a time to make decisions and I have done so.” Real resume their bid for a fourth consecutive Champions League title in the return leg against Ajax at the Santiago Bernabeu on March.
