José Mourinho and four Real Madrid players charged with unsporting conduct

• Ramos and Alonso appeared to deliberately invite red cards
• Dudek and Casillas also charged, along with team-mates

Xabi Alonso gets his marching orders in Amsterdam on Tuesday night 

Uefa has charged Jose Mourinho and four of his Real Madrid players over allegations he ordered Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso to get themselves sent off in a Champions League match.

Uefa's disciplinary committee will investigate Mourinho for alleged unsporting conduct as well as Alonso, Ramos, Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek. The Uefa Control and Disciplinary board will rule on the case on Tuesday.

Mourinho appeared to send instructions from the bench before Alonso and Ramos got second yellow cards for time-wasting late in a 4-0 win against Ajax in Amsterdam on Tuesday.

Their expulsions meant they should serve one-match suspensions in a meaningless group match against Auxerre next month, then start the knock-out rounds in February with a clean slate.

After the game, Mourinho denied any wrongdoing, saying: "Stories sell, but the important thing is the 4-0 win and the fantastic game we had. Let's talk about that and not other things."

The disciplinary hearing will take place on 30 November.

Uefa is also investigating the behaviour of the former coach of Romanian champions CFR Cluj.

Sorin Cartu, who was only appointed in September, was sacked on Thursday after smashing up the dugout during his team's 1-0 Champions League loss at FC Basel on Tuesday.

"Due to this unwanted gesture committed by Sorin Cartu we have decided to sack him from his current position," stated club president Iuliu Muresan.

"We would like to give our most sincere apologies, first of all to Uefa, the host of the Champions League competition, to the Swiss club FC Basel, to our fans and to all football and sports fans."

I think we've all debated enough whether we think what they did was right or wrong but this is interesting. I certainly didn't expect a charge to be placed as I'm not too sure how Uefa can 100% prove what they did. Though knowing Uefa, they won't actually punish them, but it opens up a can of worms. Nothing beats a bit of drama :)
