The decision did not fall very well to the 'colchoneros' and the reactions have been immediate.
In the referee's record, Gil Manzano wrote that "in the minute 78 the player (7) Sequeira, Joao Felix was admonished by the following reason: Head to me with the index finger in the temple in signal of disconformidad after having been admonished". Nevertheless, it was not the only of what complained the referee extremeño, the one who also related the rajada monumental of the sportive director of the Athletic of Madrid after the ending of the meeting.
In concrete, Gil Manzano wrote in the record that "when finalising the party, the Sportive Director Don Andrea Berta (identified by the delegate of his team), in the first place directed to the fourth referee saying him: 'This referee is very bad, does not go to go back to come here'. Next, it went in to the terrain of game to head to me saying me: 'Here never more, here never more'".
When 'it went down' the pressure, Stefan Savic also complained of it sucedido during the afternoon of this Saturday. "We are calm. We do not know what is happening. We do not have luck, but is of crazy. It is necessary to go out forward. It does not be necessary to think in the things in which we have us influence. It is necessary to look in the face and to see as they resolve this situation, because it is not normal that take us out 15 cards, because we are not the only that are protesting".
"It is not normal that take us out 15 cards. By each word takes you out a card"
Likewise, the footballer montenegrino added that "it is normal that protest . The rhythm goes up, the head sometimes is hot. All have to understand the situation, that is not the same speak with the cold head and that during the party goes up the adrenaline and everything", adding that "we have not said him at all because with him can not speak. Only that it is not normal that take us out 15 cards. By each word takes you out a card. Better no better say at all because they fall me to me first the yellow and do not want problems".

The trainer of the Athletic of Madrid, the 'Cholo' Simeone, also spoke of the situation that lived his players in the party and the expulsion of Joãor Félix: "they Are many yellow. It is necessary to look for the sensitivity of the moment. I do not think that all are yellow. Can speak with respect and education, to know what is happening", stood out.
