In Galicia as elsewhere, the night brings advice. Iago Aspas apologized this Sunday after his bloodbath the previous evening. “I made a mistake,” admitted the captain of Celta Vigo in an Instagram story, held in check on Saturday by Sevilla FC at home, during the 12th day of La Liga (1-1). I shouldn’t have expressed my frustration that way. »
On the bench for half an hour after being substituted, the 36-year-old former Spain international showed his nerves on the VAR screen after a penalty initially awarded to Celta was refused after recourse to video, at the end of added time of the match (90th + 8).
If it had been granted and converted, this “peno” would have allowed the Galician team to gain some air in the ranking, while it occupies an enviable 18th place (out of 20 teams).
Aspas had received harsh words against the refereeing at the start of the match before, therefore, apologizing a few hours later. “It hurts me because this is not the example I want to give to the youngest Celta fans,” he also said on Instagram. It remains to be seen what La Liga’s self-discipline will decide.
