Simeone furious at Rudiger’s ‘exaggeration’ of Correa’s red card

At the end of the match, Simeone expressed his anger about the matter. The Argentinian coach felt that Ahamri was not a challenge and there could be no justification for showing a red card for such a foul.

“The conflict was not very serious. That was no injury. Rudiger’s height is 1.94 meters. (In his exaggeration) the blow seemed so severe that he apparently had to sit down, but was soon able to stand up!”

“It could be a yellow card, but if we send one player off for that, there won’t be a single player left on the field.”

If the ban is upheld by La Liga, Correa will miss the next three league matches.
