Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho receive bans

Jose Mourinho

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho have been given two-match Spanish Cup bans after being sent off in Real Madrid's final defeat by Atletico.

Coach Mourinho, 50, was sent off for protesting a referee's decision, a ban he is unlikely to serve in Spain next term as he is set to leave Real.

Winger Ronaldo, 28, was red-carded after appearing to catch Atletico's Gabi with a kick to the face.

Real Madrid confirm Mourinho will leave

Both men will be available for Real's final two league games of the season.

Former Manchester United forward Ronaldo received a one-match suspension for violent conduct and another for the accumulation of cards, having received a yellow earlier in the game.

The Portuguese had put Real ahead with his 55th club goal of the season, before Diego Costa's equaliser and Miranda's extra-time winner gave Atletico a first victory against their cross-town rivals since 1999.

Both men will be available for Real's final two games of the season, which are at Real Sociedad on Sunday and at home to Osasuna the following weekend, as the bans only apply to the domestic cup competition.

The suspensions follow the announcement that Mourinho, who has been linked with a return to Chelsea, will leave the Bernabeu outfit at the end of the season after three years in charge.
