Jude Bellingham has been suspended for Real Madrid’s next two La Liga matches after receiving a red card against Valencia last weekend, as announced by the Spanish football federation on Wednesday.

Madrid tried to appeal the red card, but the disciplinary committee rejected their argument that the referee, Jesus Gil Manzano, had made a mistake in sending off Bellingham.

The English player, who is currently La Liga’s top scorer with 16 goals, scored right after the final whistle in Madrid’s 2-2 draw with Valencia.

Bellingham approached the referee to argue that the goal should count, but he was shown a red card for displaying what Gil Manzano described as an “aggressive attitude” and “shouting.”

As a result, the 20-year-old midfielder will miss the upcoming La Liga matches against Celta Vigo and Osasuna.

Real Madrid is currently leading the league by seven points over Girona and eight points over Barcelona, who are in third place.
