It Took Sergio Ramos Just Two Ligue One Games To Get Sent Off For Paris Saint-Germain

It took Sergio Ramos just two games in Ligue One to receive the first red card of his Paris Saint-Germain career.

The legendary Spain defender made the move to the French capital on a free in the summer after his contract at Real Madrid came to an end.

Persistent muscle injuries have meant he's not played as much as he would have liked, with Ramos not making his PSG debut until November.


Tonight was just his third appearance in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino's side but it was one to forget for the 35-year-old.

He came on at half-time in the 1-1 draw with Lorient and ended up being sent off five minutes from time after being shown two yellow cards.

Incredibly, this was the 27th time Ramos has been shown red in his decorated but ill-disciplined career.

In the top five leagues, he has received 21 red cards - eight more than nearest competitor Sulley Muntari, who played for Portsmouth, Inter and AC Milan.

It was a typically cynical foul from the former Real Madrid captain, who knew exactly what he was doing when he impeded the opposition forward.

He had only been cautioned a few minutes earlier. Still, he was not happy with the decision and protested to the fourth official after leaving the pitch.

PSG were 1-0 down to lowly Lorient away from home after Thomas Monconduit netted but came away with a point after Mauro Icardi struck in the 91st minute.
