Atletico Madrid Tensions flared
It is seldom a calm affair when Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club lock horns, and Saturday’s meeting at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Not figuring out that the Atletico players have been returning the ball in act of fair play, Unai Nunez mistakenly believed it was a freekick for his side and caught the ball with his hands, providing Los Colchoneros a dead ball scenario from a threatening distance.
Diego Simeone urged his players to have a strike on aim, a thing which infuratited the Athletic bench as they believed Atleti really should have returned the ball provided that Nunez had clearly suffered a moment of confusion.
“What a disgrace,” Aritz Aduriz shouted from the bench, caught by the cameras of ‘El Partidazo de Movistar.
?Any additional controversy was averted as the freekick ultimately led to practically nothing.
