The Spanish Football Federation’s Appeals Committee ratified the one-match suspension handed to Sergio Ramos for his dismissal in Sunday’s meeting with FC Barcelona and upheld the fines issued to the player (600 euros) and the club (350 euros). Real Madrid sought to land an injunction which would enable the defender to take part in tonight’s league game against Sevilla.
Ramos, who travelled to Seville with the Madrid squad this morning, must now wait to see whether the club takes the case to the Spanish Sport Ministry’s Administrative Court (TAD). If successful, the player will be available to play at the Sánchez Pizjuán and serve his suspension at a later date.
For that to happen, TAD President Enrique Arnaldo must call an emergency meeting this afternoon to discuss the matter. Last month, Madrid presented a case to the TAD to see Cristiano Ronaldo’s three-match ban reduced but their efforts were in vain.
