The Spanish sport court on Monday rejected the appeal of Real Madrid against its elimination from the King’s Cup for fielding a suspended player in a game won on December 2 against the Cadiz CF.
In a statement, the tribunal sports (TAD) announces “dismiss the application” submitted by the club merengue, and states that the decision is final.
“The club respects but does not share the resolution of the Tribunal,” responded shortly after the club said in a brief statement in which he announced his intention to resort to the ordinary courts and “other legal possibilities, which are currently in the study”.
Real had submitted the appeal to the court of the sport after being eliminated from the King’s Cup for fielding Russian Denis Cheryshev, suspended after three yellow cards when he played for Villarreal in a match won 1-3 in Cadiz .
The Appeals Committee of the Spanish Football Federation confirmed that penalty while Real claimed not to have been informed of the sanction that weighed against Cheryshev.
“Each club is responsible to check whether his players have the opportunity to be aligned,” had justified the appeal committee.
The TAD also reiterates that there is a record of players sanctioned and that sanctions are published on the web portal of the Spanish Football Federation.
“The Real Madrid, knowing the existence of the register and the web portal, apparently did not consult any of them, and he alone can be held responsible for this failure,” the statement said TAD.
