Spanish Cup: Real Madrid expelled for fielding ineligible player
December 5 , 2015
Real Madrid have been thrown out of the Copa del Rey for fielding Russian winger Denis Cheryshev, an ineligible player, during their game against Cadiz, which Real won 3-1.
Cheryshev was serving a ban imposed when he was on loan at Villarreal. However, he and Real said they were not informed before Wednesday’s game.
Real, who have won the Spanish Cup 19 times, said they would take necessary steps towards a “favorable” outcome.
