Valdes faces suspension for ref abuse

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes could face a lengthy ban for verbally abusing referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa in Saturday’s El Clasico.

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes could face a lengthy ban for verbally abusing referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa in Saturday’s El Clasico.

Valdes was furious at the official’s decision not to award a late penalty in their 2-1 loss to Real Madrid, following a challenge from Sergio Ramos on Adriano.

Although further from the action than any other player on the pitch, Valdes protested more vehemently than any of his team-mates and had to be restrained by a member of the club’s staff.

Shouting angrily in the referee’s face, Valdes was shown a yellow card but continued to protest until Perez Lasa produced a red moments later.

According to the referee’s report, Valdes verbally insulted the official, shouting: “You (the officials) s**t yourselves, you have no shame.”

And Perez Lasa claimed the ‘keeper, who will leave Barcelona when his contract expires in 2014, kept on repeating: “You have no shame.”

The referee’s full report reads as follows: “Once the game was over and while were still on the field of play, I booked Barcelona player, No. 1, Victor Valdes Arribas, for squaring up to me with his arms aloft and his voice shouting, recriminating one of my decisions. I then sent off the same player for shouting repeatly in my face, from just a few centimetres: ‘You (the officials) s**t yourselves, you have no shame.’

“After he was sent off, the same player persisted with his attitude and kept on saying, in the same tone: ‘You have no shame.’ He had to be restrained by his team-mates and a delegate from his club. Once we were in the tunnel, the same player persisted with his attitude and repeated the same thing as he had before, still shouting: ‘You have no shame, you have no shame.'”

Meanwhile, Gerard Pique stoked the flames after the game by saying: “I hope Perez Lasa apologises next time he referees one of our games.”

Real defender Ramos was handed by a five-game ban by Spain’s fooball federation (RFEF) for insulting referee Miguel Angel Ayza Gamez in a match against Celta Vigo in January and Valdes could now face a similar sanction.

    Ok peeps
    Im gonna be honest here im a real madrid fan( aha
    Yh… Mabye that was obvious)

    But the penalty(that wasnt given to barca) wás a penalty and
    Yellow card for ramos

    The barca players where rigjt with complaining
    So here for are barca fans
    You guys where right

    1. Stop complaining( the team not u guys), look at last games of real madrid
    And look how many times
    Real didnt get or a penalty or a free kick
    Or where the advesary defintly deserved a yellow or RED card and woudnt even get a warning( ofcourse it happens to barca also, its normal, wel its something that has to change, and te referees gotta change!) but its not real madrids fault or anyone else

    The way valdez acted was f@*#$ing childish and stupid
    Being upset and sad and angry
    Is normal
    But te way he almost assaulted the ref.
    + went after the guy after the match wss over

    Wat did he Hope for The ref. Saying sorry and giving them a penalty ?
    The match was over OVER!
    And calling the ref names or shouting or whatever he did( i only saw a realy ragy and misbehaving valdez on tv)

    Wasnt defintly the most right way to act
    Or option
    And come on
    Its not as
    If u guys lost la liga just for that one loss!?
    Valdez just went to far with that action
