Real Betis Manzano didn’t report the incident
Referee Gil Manzano sent Nabil Fekir off in Real Betis’ 2-1 defeat to Villarreal, and the 26-year-old forward then punched the VAR monitor on his way off the pitch.
The former Lyon player went to the dressing room frustrated after receiving two yellow cards in a matter of two minutes just before the break.
Manzano didn’t write down the incident on his post-match report and Fekir is in no danger of further sanction.
Betis coach Alexis Trujillo stressed after the game that his player is not protected in the same way as other skilful footballers with similar virtues in LaLiga Santander.
