REAL MADRID TO TAKE CIVIL ROUTE
Real Madrid have confirmed that they will contest their Copa del Rey expulsion via
the civil courts after being knocked back by TAD on Monday.
Los Blancos were punished for fielding an ineligible player in the suspended Denis
Cheryshev against Cadiz on December 4, but despite all the available sporting
channels proving unsuccessful, they will now pursue legal action against the RFEF.
“The Administrative Court of Sport has dismissed the appeal made by Real Madrid
concerning the Spanish Football Federation’s disciplinary decisions in relation to the
Copa del Rey round of 32 first-leg tie,” read a statement on Madrid’s official website.
