Valdes punished with four-game ban

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been handed a four-match suspension after being sent off in the 2-1 La Liga defeat to Real Madrid.

The shot-stopper was shown a red card for verbally abusing referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa after he refused to award Barcelona a spot-kick in the closing stages of the game.

Barcelona have released a statement stating they will not accept the ban and the club’s legal department will appeal the decision.

Valdes will miss Primera Division games against Deportivo La Coruna, Rayo Vallecano, Celta de Vigo and Real Mallorca if the suspension is upheld.

The 31-year-old has made 26 league appearances so far this term, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

    1st… he deserves this ban and i would even make it a 6 games ban
    So that players wil learn NOT to complain at the ref’s
    Thats happening far to much :T and its ruining the games

    2, valdes/ barca was right though
    It could have been/ was a penalty
    But stil, your not always lucky and it happens that ref’s dont give barca penaltys , it happens to all clubs
    And look how many times barca DID get a ‘ easy’ freekick/ oufside goal or penalty
    Or got helped by the refs….

    That happend allot of times also…

    Ofcourse u can complain a lil
    It makes you angry as a player
    Knowing the situation wasnt fair

    But…. Going after the ref
    AFTER. Te game is over+ the match is decided
    Just doesnt make sense
    And wont help at al
    Wat was valdes thinking!
    ???” Il go to the ref shout allot in his face act threatening
    Cal him a name or two and he will re-open the match and give us the penalty we deserved?
    Yeah… Right

    mr valdes,
    Im gonna be honest
    Im a real madrid fan, but i am
    Gonna admit that the penalty that wasnt given to you guys WAS a penalty and u guys deserved it.
    But……the way u acted was immature,bolt , stupid and unnecacary
