Real Madrid's appeal against cup expulsion rejected

Madrid, Safar 28, 1437, Dec 10, 2015, SPA — Real Madrid’s appeal against their expulsion from the
Spanish Cup was rejected by the appeals committee of the Spanish
football federation Thursday, dpa reported.

The Whites were expelled last week after they fielded Denis Cheryshev
in the 3-1 fourth round first leg win at Cadiz, despite the Russian
international being suspended for having picked up three yellow cards
in the cup last season when on loan at Villarreal.

The appeals committee said it found “no reason at all to overturn the
original decision” made by the federation.
