Los Blancos turned the game at Deportivo La Coruna into a leisurely stroll in the park going 2-0 up by the 27th minute, ended up winning 3-0, but their captain, Sergio Ramos, received yet another red card in added time, his 18th in LaLiga.
If you’re thinking that’s too much, and wondering if it’s some sort of record, it is. Ramos has equaled the record for most red cards, and next time he gets one he will officially be the most… sent-off player in the history of the league (he already is, but one more red card will leave him alone at the ‘top’ of the list).
When you win many titles, the rivals are full of antipathy towards you
the Spain international said after the game, trying to explain the red card.
I do not agree with the card but I respect the opinion of the referee. Sometimes officials should look at English football and let us play more. I like their system because in Europe, referees are more lenient
Ramos also told reporters. As for not getting sent-off much earlier, when he hit Fabian Schar on the head, he claimed he had no such intention.
I was cornered. I hit Schar in the head but I didn’t intend to hurt him
the Real Madrid captain said.
