UEFA investigate Mou cards scandal

Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid are under investigation for allegedly ordering their players to get sent off against Ajax, confirmed UEFA.

The Coach caused controversy during the 4-0 victory in Amsterdam when he appeared to tell players Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek to pick up cards.

The Spaniards are already qualified for the next round and sure of first place in the group ahead of Milan.

Getting these players suspended for the final group game would therefore free up their disciplinary records for the knockout phase.

“UEFA has confirmed that a disciplinary case has been opened against Real Madrid CF for the improper conduct of Coach Jose Mourinho and players Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek during the UEFA Champions League Group G match against AFC Ajax in Amsterdam on Tuesday,” read a statement.

There is also an investigation into Cluj Coach Sorin Cartu, who was so angry during the Group E defeat at Basel that he smashed the glass on the team bench.

“Both cases will be dealt with by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on Tuesday 30 November.”
