Real to appeal Coentrao ban

Real Madrid have confirmed that they will be appealing the four-match ban handed to Fabio Coentrao today.

The Portuguese full-back was sent off from the bench during Real’s defeat to Getafe this weekend for insulting match official Miguel Angel Perez Lasa.

Subsequently, the Competition Committee have handed the No 5 a four-game suspension, which Los Blancos have confirmed via a brief statement on their website, will now be appealed.
