Real Madrid vs Valencia Voiced anger to the referee
Valencia were furious when referee Jose Antonio Sanchez Martinez ruled out Rodrigo Moreno’s opening strike against Real Madrid, with Los Che captain Dani Parejo unable to hide his rage.
Maxi Gomez was deemed to have interfered with play as Raphael Varane deflected the ball into the path of Rodrigo from Carlos Soler’s pass.
“It’s always the same, always the same!!” shouted Parejo.
“But what’s it about?!” screamed another.
Players lined up on the side of the pitch as Sanchez Martinez reviewed the footage, forcing him to shoo players away.
“It’s clear!” said a Real Madrid player in the stands.
In the end, Sanchez Martinez awarded an offside and ruled out the goal.
“But what offside?!” asked a frustrated Jose Gaya, who saw a yellow card for his complaints.
After continued protests, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos got increasingly riled by Valencia’s rage from players and Albert Celades on the bench.
“Give it up already, man,” he said.
“It doesn’t affect me, Sergio, it doesn’t influence me at all,” referee Sanchez Martinez responded.
