Ronaldo's camp hint at Real Madrid exit

Ronaldo's camp hint at Real Madrid exit

Cristiano Ronaldo's final route of appeal against his five-match ban for pushing a referee after being sent off in the Spanish Super Cup was rejected by Spain's administrative sports court (TAD) on Tuesday.

Ronaldo reacted angrily to being dismissed during the second half of a 3-1 first-leg Supercopa victory for Real against Barcelona in last Monday.

In typical fashion, Ronaldo took to Instagram to criticise the decision. Injustices will never bring me down.

The Portugal captain was handed a one-match ban for the 10th red card of his career and a further four-game suspension for pushing referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea in protest.

While Real Madrid have drawn strong performances from Marcos Asensio and Gareth Bale, it looks like the Ronaldo conundrum is only getting more complicated.

The Portuguese forward will now miss this weekend's match at home to Valenica, as well as games against Levante and Real Sociedad. "Thank you to all who have supported me", Ronaldo wrote in an Instagram post seemingly in response to the court's decision to uphold the ban.
