BREAKING NEWS: Ramos charged by UEFA for deliberate booking
Sergio Ramos has been charged by UEFA with deliberately earning a yellow card in Real Madrid's Champions League last-16 first-leg win at Ajax.
The Spain international was booked in the 89th minute of his side’s 2-1 victory in Amsterdam, which means he is suspended for the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on March 5.
Ramos suggested in an interview after the match that he had been booked intentionally so as to avoid the risk of a suspension in the quarter-finals, although he later backtracked on those comments.
However, UEFA has opted to charge the Madrid captain with receiving a yellow card on purpose, with their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body to hear the case on Thursday.
