Florentino to face legal action over cup elimination

A lawsuit was filed this morning in Madrid by Catalan lawyer Felipe Izquierdo against president of Real Madrid CF, Florentino Pérez Rodríguez. The attorney was representing his clients Raúl Giménez Guillem and Susana Castaño Caba, two Real Madrid supporters who claim to have been affected financially and morally after Madrid were eliminated from this year's Copa del Rey after the club ineligibly played Denis Cheryshev against Cadiz.

After Cadiz complained Real Madrid were thrown out of the tournament for the playing of a player who was carrying a sanction.

Guillem and Caba claim that the failing of the club has led to them being subjected to ridicule which substantiates their claim for 'moral damages'. "We've had to endure being taunted in cafes and our place of work" which has led to bouts of anguish and helplessness.
