LaLiga: Refs, VAR always favour Real Madrid – Simeone

Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone has claimed Real Madrid receive preferential treatment from referees.

Simeone was reacting after Angel Correa was shown a straight red card in the 1-1 draw with their rivals on Saturday.

Referee Gil Manzano sent off Correa in the 64th minute following an elbow to Antonio Rudiger’s cheest with the score at 0-0.

“It may be a yellow [card] but taking a player out for that, there would be no players left on the field.

“It’s the same story. It is normal, and it has become normal [refereeing favouring Madrid] and that’s not right and it would be nice if we could all compete in the same way,” Simeone told DAZN after the game.
