According to COPE, Real Madrid are set to appeal against Jude Bellingham’s red card that the Englishman received during Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Valencia.

For that, the report claims that the team from the Spanish capital will stand their ground on two arguments.

First, it is to be noted that the match official, Gil Manzano, stated in his match report that Bellingham charged at him screaming. However, Madrid will argue that the referee did not actually see the midfielder.

Second, the fact that Bellingham said ‘It’s a ****ing goal’ is not really an insult. In fact, it is something that a number of English players say.

What was mentioned in Gil Manzano’s report?

Manzano made the news over the weekend after he overturned Bellingham’s potential match-winner against Valencia.

The argument revolved around the fact that the official had blown the full-time whistle just after Brahim Diaz had crossed the ball, with Bellingham heading it in.

Madrid, on the other hand, expressed their disappointment by stating that it was wrong of Manzano to blow his whistle when the team was on the attack.

Submitting his report after the game, Manzano stated that in the 99th minute, Bellingham was issued a red card due to an incident that occurred after the conclusion of the match.

“While still on the field, he approached me [Manzano] in a forceful manner, angrily shouting and repeatedly emphasizing that ‘It’s a ****ing goal’.

Games Bellingham can miss if suspended

As a result of the incident, La Liga rules claim that protesting against the decision of the match referee calls for a suspension of two to three matches and given the time of the year, Madrid can not afford to lose a player like Bellingham which is why they have decided to appeal against the sending off.

If it goes in Madrid’s favour, well and good. If not, the England midfielder will miss the home match against Celta Vigo, the away match against Osasuna, and potentially the home fixture against Athletic Club as well.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
