When Sergio Ramos tried to play the system by picking up a yellow card against Ajax, he wasn't exactly subtle.

Speaking to BT Sport after Thursday's game, Cole said: "The response was excellent, I think Sarri's put his marker down, "I'm going this way, we're sticking with my philosophy" and the lads bought into it". Nonetheless, it's a risky approach as UEFA rules state a player who purposely obtains a booking can be banned for two games.

At the end of the match in mixed zone the central defender declared he had searched for the foul warning and he later recanted his statements on his own Twitter social network account, so UEFA opened a process of investigation.

The 32-year-old was also seen communicating with the bench prior to making the tackle.

Press Association Sport understands UEFA's reports said the pitch-invaders were Chelsea fans.

On Friday, he made one last attempt to clarify his comments.

It was not enough to save him from the sack, though, and so perhaps for Sarri the cup runs may already prove to be too little too late, with Roman Abramovich not used to seeing his side embarrassed as they have been in their last two away games.

"It was a risky counter-attack in the 88th minute, with the game and the tie open".

Asked if he knew the foul was likely to lead to a yellow card and a ban, Ramos said: "Yes, but I had no choice". "It's something I was thinking about, it's not to underestimate the opponent nor say the tie is over but in football you have to take hard decisions so I chose to do it".

"If I had wanted to force a penalty, I could have done it in the group stage, in the match against Roma because we were already classified as first of groups and the last game, against CSKA, was inconsequential".

" I am happy with the confidence, it wasn't easy to play with this confidence after the last match".

In the aftermath of his controversial interview, Ramos also tweeted to reiterate that he hadn't forced the ban on goal.

If he were available for the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, he would be risking a booking or a red card which would mean a suspension for the quarter-finals instead.

Should Ramos receive a longer ban?
