Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea may have expected to receive a backlash for showing Cristiano Ronaldo a red card in the Supercopa de Espana on Sunday night, but the physical rebuttal displayed by the Real Madrid man may land him on the sidelines for some time.
While the ecstasy was all Los Blancos’ in the first leg, the agony was shared as Cristiano Ronaldo’s double yellow card for over exuberant celebrating and diving marred the 3-1 win.

Article 96 of the Spanish FA’s rulebook notes how such a push on an official can earn anything from a four game ban to twelve game ban.
Cristiano Ronaldo sensationally shoved Sunday’s Clasico referee after scoring a wondergoal in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Barcelona.
The Portuguese star came on in the 57th minute of the Spanish Supercopa at Camp Nou and, by the 81st minute, he had fired the European champions towards victory, earned two yellow cards and pushed the referee to leave him facing a lengthy ban.
What’s worse for Ronaldo is that De Burgos Bengoetxea has mentioned the shove in his official match report.”Once the red card was shown, the player pushed me slightly in a sign of disagreement,” he wrote.
