Seville: Jules Koundé, a stroke of blood that goes badly

Expelled Tuesday night for a bad gesture against FC Barcelona, ​​Sevilla defender FC Jules Koundé is talking about him a lot this Wednesday. The French defender also risks several matches of suspension.

Before the match between Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid scheduled for Wednesday evening (9 p.m.), Sevilla FC had the opportunity to temporarily return to three points from Casa Blanca on Tuesday in case of success against FC Barcelona. Unfortunately, at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium, the Andalusian club could not do better than a 1-1 draw (late game of La Liga Matchday 4). And the sad red card received by Jules Koundé did not help.

After a duel with two Blaugranas including Jordi Alba to get a touch, the 23-year-old French defender did not appreciate a small charge from the Spanish side in the back. Suddenly, the former player of the Girondins de Bordeaux grabbed the ball and threw it in the face of his opponent. Results ? An expulsion and almost 30 minutes of shorthanded play for Julen Lopetegui’s team, who returned to this scene at a press conference.

Lopetegui: “He fell into the trap of the adversary”

“He knows he was wrong, there wasn’t much to say either. He got carried away. It’s a matter of age but I’m sure it won’t affect him too much since he’s young. It’s a bad day. It happens to you, it happens to me, it’s a bad day at work. He is aware of it. He is very smart, very young and, as young as he is, he sometimes makes mistakes. He fell into the trap of the adversary “, said his trainer. An event which can happen but which can be expensive.

According to arbitration specialist Iturralde González, who spoke on the Cadena SER, the French international (7 capes) risks being suspended for four matches for this bad gesture, under the Disciplinary Code of the RFEF, the Spanish Football Federation. Jules Koundé could therefore return to competition on January 23 against Celta de Vigo, on behalf of the 22nd day of the Spanish Championship.
