Sergio Ramos was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in just 30 seconds for Paris Saint-Germain in their game against Reims on Saturday.
Christophe Galtier’s side have been unstoppable in Ligue 1 this season but they might have just shot themselves in the foot. Chasing a goal at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II, the game looked like it was heading into the break goalless.
But with five minutes before the break, Ramos was handed a booking that led to some protestations. So much so that within 30 seconds, the referee brandished a second yellow and he was sent off.
The Spanish defender had got right up into the match official’s face and barked into his face, resulting in the decision to send Ramos off. And, there was a huge reaction on social media.

After a foul committed by Marco Verratti, the referee Pierre Gaillouste, decided it was time for him to take center stage. Unfortunately, Ramos was the player that Gaillouste circled for his arguing over the foul
One Twitter user said: “Sergio Ramos has been sent off for 2 yellow cards in the space of 30 seconds. Ramos is back!”
Another tweeted: “3 things I know. Water’s wet, the sky is blue and Ramos loves a red card.”

This was the 28th red card of Ramos’ career and his second since leaving Real Madrid for PSG. The last time that the Ligue 1 champions saw him sent off saw them drop points to Lorient in a 1-1 draw.
Over the years, Ramos has been renowned for his relationship with red cards and no other player has been sent off more than him in the UEFA Champions League with four.
The Spain international also holds the record for the most La Liga red cards, seeing it 20 times in the Spanish league.
