‘Hit an opponent with his hand in the face with excessive force’

The completion of the Levante-Athletic disputed last night at the Ciutat de Valencia brought with it an expulsion on the Bilbao side once the clash ended. The minutes of the referee Díaz de Mera made the incident in question very clear. Incident that will entail a sanction for Iñigo Martínez, the one involved in it, although we have to wait to see if it is in a League or Cup match.

“In the 90th minute the player (4) Martinez Berridi, Iñigo was sent off for the following reason: Once the match was over and while he was still on the field of play, he hit an opponent with his hand in the face with the use of excessive force. This fact was communicated to both delegates in the changing room tunnel, since the player involved had left the field of play, ”the referee’s report states.

Athletic, after confirming the fact Marcelino in the press conference after the crash, published a message on his official twitter account in which it was indicated that “With the game over, and after consulting the VAR, the referee showed Íñigo Martínez a red card for a game with Sergio León”. It remains to wait to see if this action by Iñigo Martínez is considered aggression or not and how many games of suspension it carries.
