Sergio Ramos Sent Off For 25th Time For Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos Sent Off For 25th Time For Real Madrid

Some footballers have a bit of an unfair reputation but Sergio Ramos has a very fair reputation and the Real Madrid captain furthered his own impressive red card record with the 25th of his Real Madrid career.

Sergio Ramos and cards go hand in hand. There's part of your brain that makes you believe he gets at very least a yellow card every time he steps foot on a football pitch, it probably isn't that far off.

In 2018 the Real Madrid defender actually managed to go a whole year without seeing red, either for Los Blancos or the Spain national team, impressive work.

However it hasn't taken him all that long to break the duck in 2019 as he went for his 25th early shower in his Real Madrid career on Sunday afternoon.

Los Blancos played Girona in La Liga with a chance to move back within six points of Barcelona, who played on Saturday, but having taken the lead they capitulated in the second half to lose 2-1.

Girona got level through a penalty after Ramos had handled and after they'd taken the lead the defender got a second yellow for an overhead kick attempt in Girona's box that was considered dangerous by the referee:

The second yellow might have been a bit harsh on him but he's pretty lucky to still be on the pitch after the deliberate handball with the ball going towards the goal.

Ramos was already one yellow card away from missing the La Liga game against Levante and after that Real are due to face Barcelona, so a cynic might think it wasn't much of a surprise to see him get booked.

The four times Champions League winner could already be in trouble for an allegedly deliberate yellow card in the Champions League game against Ajax in midweek.

Sergio Ramos really can't complain about his reputation, it's well earned.
