The Real Madrid star has hit out at the sanction, which was issued after he laid his hands on a match official against Barcelona.
The world football star took to his Instagram page to react to the ban. He wrote on his page:
Impossível ficar imune a esta situação, 5 jogos!! Parece-me exagerado e ridículo, isto chama-se perseguição! Obrigado aos meus companheiros pelo apoio e aos adeptos!!!
(Yeah, Goodluck reading that!).
… It’s translated in English as:
Impossible to be immune to this situation, 5 games !! It seems to me exaggerated and ridiculous, this is called persecution! Thanks to my teammates for the support and the fans !!!
