Sergio Ramos Overtakes Paul Scholes’ Champions League Record
Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, picked up a record 37th yellow card in 115 Champions League games, in his team’s 3-0 Group G win over Roma on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old has now overtaken former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, as the most cautioned player in the competition.
Ramos also holds the record for the most yellow cards in a single Champions League campaign, picking up five bookings in the 2010/2011 and 2012/2013 seasons.
Scholes never earned more than four yellows in one campaign.
The Spain defender’s dubious record aside, it was a spectacular start to the three-time defending champions title defense, with Gareth Bale, Isco and returnee Mariano all scoring at the Santiago Bernabeu.
