More confusion at Real Madrid as Pellegrini axes Ramos for Copa

More concerns have been raised over Real Madrid management after Sergio Ramos did not feature in last night's forlorn Copa del Rey victory over Alcorcon.

An uninspired Real won 1-0, but were still bundled out by their third division opponents 4-2 on aggregate.

Real coach Manuel Pellegrini chose not to feature Ramos, insisting afterwards that he was suspended after being sent-off in their derby win at Atletico Madrid.

However, it's emerged that Ramos was indeed available as the Spanish Federation do not convene on public holidays - like Monday - and so the player's suspension had not been decided.
