Sadness and agony showed in Cheryshev's face last night as he was subbed of for Kovacic. After the fiasco broke in social media, news soon travelled to the Barragan Stadium. Denis Cheryshev had been suspended for one game after an accumulation of cards during a game against FC Barcelona, however the academy player says he was never informed of this ban.
"I haven't received any notification from Villareal CF saying that I couldn't take part in this cup game" said Denis Cheryshev after the game at Cadiz.
The player along with the president Florentino Perez have informed spanish media that they were never informed of this problem and that they will go to any measures to resolve this issue in order for Real Madrid to maintain their place in the Copa Del Rey.
One can only feel sorry for Cheryshev. The winger finally gets his chance and has a great impact on the game by scoring that great first goal to give Madrid the league and his night is completely overshadowed by this preventable problem.
