Over 100,000 People Sign Petition For FIFA to Retrospectively Punish Sergio Ramos

Over 100,000 People Sign Petition For FIFA to Retrospectively Punish Sergio Ramos

FIFA are under increasing pressure to punish Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos after his tangle with Mo Salah in last night’s Champions League final – with more than 100,000 people signing a growing petition.

The Los Blancos captain was in outstanding form against Liverpool as his side claimed their third consecutive euro triumph in Kiev, with Gareth Bale scoring twice as the La Liga giants ran out 3-1 winners.

One of the key points in the contest was when Liverpool’s top-scorer Salah was forced to go off just after the half-hour mark, following a coming together with Ramos.

At the time it looked fairly innocent but countless replays show Ramos gripping Salah’s arm as he falls and it now seems the Spanish World Cup winner is being turned into Public Enemy No.1.

And the number of people demanding action is taken against Ramos is now into the six-figures – and will probably be closer to the one million mark before the end of the day:

The first thing to mention is that the Champions League is actually a UEFA competition, and FIFA don’t have any direct jurisdiction over last night’s final, so this particular petition is exactly directed correctly.

But what do you think of the petition?
