Poor Rafa. That can only mean one thing. Zidane to take over by Christmas.

That ineligible player is a pain for the Spanish footy authorities. How can they let RM off whilst making it appear they have actually punished them?

They could ban them from making any substitutions once they have substituted all the players they need to in a match.

Season long ban from changing their name to Barcelona

They could be banned for the rest of the season from fielding ineligible players.

“Clearly we didn’t know. Villarreal and the federation hadn’t warned us,” said Madrid boss Rafael Benitez.

“When we knew we substituted him to show good faith.”

minutes after kick-off, social media was awash with a mixture of outrage, embarrassment, incredulity and outright laughter from different quarters as it became apparent that Cheryshev was ineligible for the match, facing a suspension held over from last season.

They've been turfed out of the cup.

Huzzah.

davedanon - 04 Dec 2015 18:38:05 (#32 of 104)

So now they will be missing the action.

how alanis.

cozzer - 04 Dec 2015 18:39:06 (#33 of 104)

They're obviously not set to have an outstanding season in the cup this year.

Moschops - 04 Dec 2015 18:40:06 (#34 of 104)

But they have hundreds of millions of fans? That makes this ruling very unfair.

sympforthedevil - 04 Dec 2015 19:43:53 (#35 of 104)

It's a fuck-up by Benitez and the other coaching staff but I blame the player. He must have known that he was suspended and really should have known that he wasn't going to get away with it. He should have told them that he wasn't eligible for that game and that they shouldn't have tried to play him.

Arjuna - 05 Dec 2015 15:17:09 (#36 of 104)

But a club that size should have somebody to check that sort of thing, they employ three people just to iron Ronaldo's pants.

guigal - 08 Dec 2015 21:18:16 (#37 of 104)

Real 8 - 0 up against Malmo, but there's another 15 minutes to go.

Vendor - 08 Dec 2015 21:24:23 (#38 of 104)

Fucking hell, where did you pop up from?
