Entering the break against Lorient (1-1) on Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain central defender Sergio Ramos was sent off at the end of the match. Dj lacking rhythm, the Spaniard will spend more than two weeks without playing.
Ramos will have to wait before playing again
Clearly, nothing is easy for Sergio Ramos. While playing for the first time in a second game in a row with Paris Saint-Germain this season, the 35-year-old central defender was sent off after 40 minutes spent on the lawn of Lorient (1-1) on Wednesday, on the 19th day of Ligue 1.
Two yellow cards in 4 minutes
Yesterday at Moustoir, the Spaniard entered the break. Three days after a start and 45 minutes arguing against Feignies-Aulnoye (3-0) in the Coupe de France, Mauricio Pochettino preferred to wait to start it at half-time. This allowed the Parisian coach to test a three defense in the second period, with the former Madrid alongside Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe.
For 40 minutes, the native of Camas was rather convincing. He did not hesitate to carry the ball higher than his defensive partners to energize the recovery and he went up a notch in terms of aggressiveness. A little too much even as the end of the match approaches. Warned in the 81st minute for an excess of engagement, the 2010 world champion received a second yellow card, synonymous with expulsion, four minutes later for an obstruction on Terem Moffi who left on goal.
Ramos won’t play again for two and a half weeks
As a result, Ramos will be suspended for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France against Vannes (N2) on January 3. He will have to wait until January 9, if the Disciplinary Commission does not impose two suspension matches on him, to apply for the Parisian eleven Lyon for the 20th day of Ligue 1.
It remains to be seen what his physical condition will be after two and a half weeks without playing. Victim of muscular fatigue which had deprived him of three weeks of competition after his great beginnings in Saint-Etienne (3-1), on November 28, the Spaniard can no longer afford to take risks if he wants to convince that he is still fit for the highest level.
