Real Madrid have been disqualified from the Copa del Rey competition for fielding an ineligible player.  Cheryshev, the player in question who received three yellow cards in the competition last season on loan at Villarreal scored the first goal for the Blancos during their clash with Cadiz on Wednesday night.
Shortly after an official complaint was filed by Cadiz, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez called a press conference insisting that he wasn’t aware of the 24 year-old’s suspension. 
That apparently didn’t do much as the Spanish authorities today threw them out of the competition.
