“I’m surprised that Nacho’s disciplinary action was reduced.. It didn’t work out for Lewandowski, right?” Barça coach Xavi’s dissatisfaction
Reporter Joo Dae-eun = Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández was angry about Real Madrid Nacho’s disciplinary action being relaxed.
On the 20th (Korean time), Spanish media ‘Sport’ reported, “Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández was angry and very surprised by the reduction in punishment for Real Madrid Nacho.”
Real Madrid met Girona in the 8th round of the Spanish Primera Liga held at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi in Girona, Spain on the 1st and won 3-0.
Nacho, who started this day, made a rough tackle on Christian Porto in extra time in the second half and received a red card after a video review. Because the tackle was so dangerous, Nacho was banned for three games.
After the game, Nacho posted on his SNS, “I apologize to Porto for my unintentional actions during the game. Throughout my career, I have never intended to hurt anyone. “I hope you recover quickly,” he said, admitting his mistake.
Due to the disciplinary action, Nacho was unable to participate in El Clásico against Barcelona. Real Madrid appealed the ban. It is true that the tackle was rough, but it meant that the punishment was too heavy.
The Spanish Football Federation upheld the appeal and reduced the punishment. According to ‘The Athletic’, the disciplinary committee changed Nacho’s punishment from three games to two games. Nacho can participate in El Clásico.토스카지노
Barcelona coach Xavi was furious after hearing the news. “I’m surprised they changed their decision,” he said. “Nacho’s behavior was a very dangerous behavior that could have hurt his colleagues,” he said, criticizing the easing of disciplinary action.
He even compared it to Lewandowski’s case. Lewandowski was sent off for accumulating warnings in the game against Osasuna last season. Lewandowski was leaving the stadium, rubbing his nose with his index finger. This action is said to have had an insulting meaning.
In the end, Lewandowski was banned for three games. “A three-game ban is too long,” Lewandowski said at the time. “My actions were not directed at the referee, but toward the bench. “I hope my appeal is accepted,” he said, complaining of injustice.
However, Lewandowski’s appeal was dismissed at the time. La Liga upheld Lewandowski’s suspension and he was sidelined for three games. Coach Xavi said, “Lewandowski touched his nose and the punishment was not relaxed. “It’s surprising,” he said, showing signs of discomfort.
