Fuenlabrada Player Sees Red Card Decision Overturned, Before Getting Himself Sent Off
There were some mad scenes in La Liga today as Fuenlabrada's Cristóbal Márquez was sent off twice against Girona.
The 35-year old was initially sent off for a late challenge but after he had already walked down to the dressing room, the referee went to VAR and upon review it was decided the offence would be downgraded to a yellow card.
You'd think Marquez would play it smart and be on his best behaviour when he was allowed to return to the pitch but that wasn't the case.
He had a monumental rush of blood and immediately squared up against Girona striker Christian Stuani.
The referee then brandished a second yellow card and mere seconds after coming back onto the pitch following the VAR reprieve, he was sent off for good this time.
Absolutely incredibly scenes. The only VAR incident that rivals it in terms of comedy value is what happened to William Remy in the game between Legia Warsaw and Cracovia.
The Frenchman was initially shown a second yellow card and sent back to the dressing room, only for the referee to go to VAR.
He was then able to get a closer look at the incident and discover that Remy had stamped on an opponent. Incredibly, the 27-year old was then brought back onto the pitch from the dressing room just to be sent off again.
