Former referee slams decision not to send Sergio Ramos off
- Ramos made a bad tackle on Ruben Garcia in the 79th minute, clearly catching his ankle.
- The Real Madrid captain received only a yellow card.
- Now Iturralde Gonzalez doesn't see why VAR didn't intervene to give the defender a straight red.
- 'VAR has to step in over the Ramos incident and have him sent off', he said.
"VAR has to step in over the Ramos incident and have him sent off," former Spanish referee Iturralde Gonzalez told Spanish radio station Cadena SER.
"It's a red-card challenge on the player's ankle. VAR is increasingly losing credibility.
"The system has no defence [for not intervening]."
There have been many cases where VAR failed this season, and most of them were not in favour of Real Madrid. Some were evident on Sunday as well, especially on Pervis Estupinan's foul against Luka Modric and Nacho Vidal's tackle on Fede Valverde.
