Real Madrid captain Raul has backed the club in their decision to fine and ban Antonio Cassano from training for insulting coach Fabio Capello after last weekend’s victory over Gimnastic.
“It’s a matter for the club and you have to accept the rules of the internal code of behaviour,” Raul told Marca.
“I think we have to work hard for one another, be humble and work to the same objective and be aware that we are at a great club.”
Italy striker Cassano was given the punishment for what the club termed as “an act of indiscipline showing a lack of respect to the coach”.
According to reports Cassano had insulted Capello, saying: “I deserve to play and be in the starting line-up. You are shameless. I stood up for you at Roma and this is how you pay me back.”
The 24-year-old had previous run-ins with Capello while at Roma.
