The player kicked Kroos twice in a row in a short interval of time and the referee did not hesitate in showing him red.
Madrid were very good in the match against Athletic. In just 13 minutes, Athletic were down to ten players after Raul Garcia was sent off.
The player practically lost his head and left his team in a numerical disadvantage very early on. He kicked Kroos twice in a row and both actions ended in a yellow card.
In the 8th minute, Raúl García was cautioned after giving the German a good kick, although it should also be mentioned that Modric was also fouled.
And five minutes later, the Athletic player, who went to pressure Kroos, went too far and took the Germans legs from underneath him, who ended up in pain on the floor. Gil Manzano did not hesitate and showed him the second yellow, so he saw the red and was sent off.
