Sergi Roberto banned for four games

Barca fans left upset as Sergi Roberto is slapped with four-game ban

May 9, 2018 By Ali M.
The Spaniard has been handed an unfair suspension, in the eyes of Blaugrana fans, for his red-card offense against Marcelo in El Clasico.

The verdict is in for Sergi Roberto. The punishment for his sending off in El Clasico has been announced, leaving Barcelona fans and its fans outraged.

The Spanish midfielder was one of many to start Sunday’s tie, but his time on the pitch came to a quick end. An altercation with Marcelo earned the player, who was once again playing in the right-back role, his marching orders.

Roberto was guilty of lashing out at Real Madrid’s Brazilian defender, appearing to slap the Blancos ace, and was thus shown no mercy by the referee. La Liga has taken a similar stance, announcing that the Spaniard has been slapped with a four-game ban.

This suspension has prematurely ended the 26-year-old’s season with the Catalan giant. Roberto will thus play no part in Barcelona’s final three league games of this season, as they push to end the season unbeaten.

His punishment will even carry over to next season, as he will be forced to sit out the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla. Barcelona is unhappy with this ban and immediately tweeted that they will appeal this decision.

Many on Twitter – mostly Barcelona fans – echoed the Blaugrana’s outrage. Some even pointed to an incident involving Cristiano in which he lashed out at an opponent only to receive a more lenient suspension. Check out the best tweets.
