Leganes Goalkeeper Gets Sent Off After Being Pushed By Atletico Madrid Ball Boy

Leganes Goalkeeper Gets Sent Off After Being Pushed By Atletico Madrid Ball Boy

Leganes goalkeeper Picchu Cuéllar was sent off after being pushed by an Atletico Madrid ball boy in a crazy end to the game at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Cuéllar was already on a yellow card when he decided to do a fair bit of time-wasting late on in the 0-0 draw.

He handed the ball back to the ball boy behind the goal on two occasions in a bid to buy himself a bit of time, but the young ball-getter wasn't happy with his actions.

The Spaniard received a slight push from the ball boy and went down as though he had just been caught flush in the face with a Mike Tyson right hook.

But his pathetic play-acting only made things worse as the referee brandished the second yellow and subsequently dismissed him.

Cuéllar wasn't finished there though. He took an absolute age to leave the field and had an altercation with Alvaro Morata and many of the Atleti players.

Eventually he did exit the pitch and because the visitors had already used all three subs, defender Jonathan Silva took his shirt and gloves before seeing out the final moments in between the sticks.
