Ref Abuse Lands Valdes In Hot Water

By Diogo Peral - Mar 03, 2013 12:45 AM

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is looking at a lengthy ban for verbally abusing referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa in Saturday's El Clasico.

Valdes was incensed by the official's decision not to award a late penalty in their 2-1 loss to Real Madrid.

Valdes had to be restrained by a member of the club's staff after being shown a red card moments after having been shown a yellow following the final whistle.

Referee Perez Lasa details in his match report how the Barca keeper kept on repeating: "You have no shame."

"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,” read the report.

"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.'"
