but saw his effort ruled out in stoppage time as referee Gil Manzano had already blown the full-time whistle as the cross was delivered into the box.

The referee’s report, published after the game, read: ‘In minute 999 (sic), the player (5) Bellingham, Jude Victor William, was sent off for the following motive: After the end of the game and while still on the pitch, he came running over to me in an aggressive way shouting, repeatedly: “It’s a f*****g goal”.’

The suspension will rule Bellingham out of a home game against Celta Vigo on 10 March and a trip to Osasuna six days later.

Real Madrid intent to appeal against the decision and while Bellingham says he will ‘accept responsibility’ if the verdict is not changed, he hopes to see it reduced.

‘I don’t know if I can say too much about it, I have got investigations, bans and appeals up to my eyeballs so I don’t really know what to say,’ Bellingham told TNT Sport following Real’s Champions League clash with RB Leipzig on Wednesday night.

‘But I would like to think maybe the club can appeal it and get it shortened.
