Gil Manzano, to the ‘refrigerator’ after Valencia-Real Madrid

Jesus Gil Manzano will not referee any match for the second consecutive week, after his controversial performance in the ValenciaReal Madrid. The Technical Committee of Referees (CTA) announced this Thursday its appointments for the LaLiga matches this weekend and the Extremaduran referee does not appear in them, either as a field referee or as VAR.

Gil Manzano had not refereed last day, but that was within the norm, given that the usual thing is for the referees to rotate, directing a match every two days, with some exceptions. The fact that he has not been designated for matches this weekend does indicate that there is a disciplinary punishment, or at least a warning, from the CTA. What goes in the ‘fridge’as they say in the slang.

This happens after his controversial refereeing in Valencia-Real Madrid. The controversial move occurred at the last moment. The international referee, the highest rated of all the Spaniards, decided to signal the end of the match, with injury time already expired, while Real Madrid put together an attacking play.

The expulsion of Bellingham

Moments after that final whistle, Jude Bellingham scored a goal that would have given Real Madrid the victory and three points at Mestalla, but which logically did not add to the scoreboard, causing massive protests from the white team.

During those complaints, Bellingham snapped “It’s a fucking goal!” (“It’s a fucking goal!”). A reaction that caused Gil Manzano, visibly nervous, to send off the Englishman with a straight red card. An expulsion that caused the Competition Committee to sanction him with two games. This weekend will be the second of them.

Without Gil Manzano in the equation, the CTA has opted for Juan Martínez Munuera for Osasuna-Real Madrid on Saturday (16.15) and has entrusted José María Sánchez Martínez the most attractive match of the day, Atlético-Barça on Sunday (9:00 p.m.).
