The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Committee sanctioned the defender with four games
Atlético de Madrid Stefan Savic for his expulsion for “attacking” a rival and for “directing abusive language” towards the referee in the second leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League against him Chelsea, in addition to fining the club 24,000 euros for “inappropriate team behavior” and being responsible for the late start of the match.
A piece of news, advanced by this newspaper, that has not fallen at all well either in the mattress club or among its fans. There are already several disagreements that the rojiblanca entity has had in these years. And within the mattress fans there is a feeling of unfair treatment, something that has been accentuated by this situation.
Especially when, as they aim from the club itself or from the fans, the friction of Savic Y Rudiger it was by no means an assault. There was an elbow, yes, from the Montenegrin to get rid of the German, but the German gave him a good dose of interpretation according to what was seen in the images.
With everything that is falling, with the arbitration issue that was generated after what happened in the Sánchez Pizjuán, this type of news has reinforced the idea that the Atlético de Madrid compete “against everything and everyone.”
