UEFA have charge Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos for “receiving a yellow card on purpose” in his side’s Champions League clash against Ajax.
The central defender told reporters in the immediate aftermath of the match that he “forced the foul” but later clarified his remarks.
“I was talking about forcing the foul, not the booking, because the foul was inevitable,” Ramos said.
“They had a very dangerous counter-attack with two minutes remaining, it is a very open match and tie.”
UEFA said its disciplinary panel will rule over the case on Thursday and a punishment could see his suspension stretched from one game.
In a similar case last week, UEFA imposed a two-game Europa League ban on Valencia’s midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.
