As they’re kicked out of the tournament for fielding an ineligible player, take a look at this selection of the best Real Madrid Copa del Rey jokes.

Russia international Denis Cheryshev was named in the starting line-up for Madrid’s 1-3 fourth-round win at Cádiz on Wednesday and went on to score their first goal.

However Cheryshev was suspended after receiving a third yellow card in the competition in last year’s semi-final, while on loan at Villarreal.

The 24-year-old winger was substituted shortly after half-time when the coaching staff realised their mistake, but the damage had already been done.

The Spanish FA have fined Rafael Benítez’s side and expelled them from the tournament, deciding the result of the match is now a home win.

And these are the best of the Real Madrid Copa del Rey jokes:
