Leaving to a side to Thibaut Courtois, that avoided several goals in the extention and stopped a penalti in the batch, Federico Valverde was the big hero of the Real Madrid in the final of the Supercopa of Spain. The midfield player charrúa did a partidazo, but his more decisive action was the tremenda gone in with which avoided that Morata could mark in the 115 of the extention. By her and by his global performance, Luis Enrique and the rest of his technical body topped him like MVP of the final.

The referee expelled him without doubting it by the patadón, but the charrúa already had fulfilled with his work. The forward colchonero already encaraba to Courtois in the one against one and had it everything in favour to mark, but Valverde avoided it with a very hard entrance by behind in the frontal of the area. The carrerón of the canterano of the Peñarol is worthy of praise, but no so much his action antideportiva. In spite of this, did what had to do so that his team arrived with life to the batch of penaltis.

It is something that does not have to do. They are mates that play with another team. I have apologised him to Álvaro. It is not well do what did, but was the last. I tried to do other things, but did not arrive. I am happy by the title, but remains me this espinita because it is not good", said, happy, but arrepentido.

The true is that, antideportiva or no, with this patada attained that Morata could not not even encarar to a Courtois that was almost sold. Valverde Sacrificed by the rest of his mates knowing also that the penaltis were to alone five minutes more. The Madrid held the charged colchoneras in the last instants of the extra time and at the end attained to raise the Supercopa after winning with ease in the batch.

But this red no only will involve him lose the last minutes of the final. With the new norms of the Supercopa, the sanction after the expulsion will fulfil in the following party of League or Glass. Therefore, the mediocampista will not contest the crash of LaLiga in front of the Seville of the weekend that comes. It will be a commitment complicated for the merengues, that will not be able to have one of his best footballers this season.

"The prize to the MVP of Fede Valverde carries some point in the expulsion because it won the party he. The played more important of the party was this action. This played deprived us of an occasion of goal that was likely to decide the party. Afterwards I said him that it did not concern , that any one would do the same in his place. It had to do it", it admitted the Argentinian.
