Explaining the confusing decisions, the match’s main referee, Mr. Figueroa Vazquez, said that despite not knowing Spanish, Greenwood insulted him many times. The referee explained: “In the 50th minute, Greenwood was sent off because it seemed he reacted to my decision. After being sent off the field, he also made a repeated gesture, disagreeing with this decision. I don’t know if he understood what we said or not.

Besides him, Getafe’s remaining two red cards came from their inappropriate reaction to the referee. I heard many insults and the red card was deserved.”

In contrast to referee Figueroa Vazquez, Getafe’s coaching staff appeared confused by what their team’s players had to receive. Coach Jose Bordalas defended Greenwood and confirmed that the referee made a translation error when communicating with him.

Jose Bordalas  shared: “Greenwood is a very good guy. Even though he doesn’t speak Spanish, Greenwood always respects everyone. He never offended anyone, it’s that simple. I think everything was exaggerated and the referee was too strict, making things worse.”
