      The Disciplinary Committee of the Real Spanish Football Federation has upheld the five match ban slammed on Real Madrid’s star Cristiano Ronaldo.

      It means the player will be missing in action from today, when Madrid host at Santiago Bernabeu, Barcelona in the second leg of the Spanish SuperCup.

      According to multiple sources, the committee turned down the appeal by Real Madrid.

      The club had expected that the committee would review the sanction, following the red card earned by Ronaldo at the first leg of the SuperCup at Camp Nou on Sunday. The player got the five match ban because he also pushed the referee, Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea.

      Coach Zinedine Zidane had hoped that Ronaldo would be spared when he on Tuesday reviewed tonight’s clash with Barcelona.

      And reports said he may also be in soup as well, as the committee is scrutinising his comment about the ban, especially after he said: “I hope they’ve not got something against Cristiano Ronaldo and people do their job with integrity”. His statement is being interpreted as a challenge of the referee’s authority.
