Referee who Ejected Ronaldo Gets a Suspension

Miguel Angel Ayza Gamez dismissed Ronaldo after he appeared to push Carlos Gurpegi in the face and then came head to head with Ander Iturraspe.

Real appealed the decision after replays showed Gurpegi’s dramatic reaction was an apparent attempt to get the Ballon d’Or winner sent off, but the appeal was thrown out by the Spanish Football Federation.

However, have tweeted that the Spanish League’s Refereeing Technical Committee has dropped Gamez for a month. Further, he will not be selected for any of Real’s remaining matches this season.

“…experience playing in the futsal league has been terrific! The game itself is fast paced and has challenged my players decision making. Because it is 5v5, all the players are constantly involved. In fact because of their high involvement I often have to be careful substituting. It has been a real pleasure watching the players grow playing this game and the parents have also really enjoyed it so much that they have been asking about playing in another session. They have always said “the game” is the best teacher. Futsal is the epitome of this statement.
