I would call that’s very good decision was made by Valverde, he knew if he let Morata, most likely he would hit it to the net in 1vs1 situation against Courtois (minute 114+), so he chose this “smart” tackle to let both teams draw into penalty.
Result? Guess what! Real Madrid won Supercopa De Espana!

Diego Simeone was interviewed after this match, then he said:
🗣 Diego Simeone: “Fede Valverde’s red card was the most important moment of the game. I told him not to worry, that anyone would’ve done the same in his position. He won the game.”

Fede Valverde also gave statement after the match, then he said:
🎙️ Fede Valverde: “It’s something you shouldn’t do. I said sorry to Morata. It’s not good to do what I did, but I was the last man. I tried to do something else, but I couldn’t get there. I’m happy about the title, but I’m left with a bad feeling because of what I did.

Maybe that piece of play [the red card] stood out because it was one of the last in the game. But what should stand out is every piece of play and every bit of effort from every teammate. They congratulated me and I really enjoyed it with everyone.

Zidane supported me in what was a sad moment. I was leaving the team a man down, but my teammates and the coaching staff gave me strength. Simeone came over too. I’m not going to say what he said, but not everyone would do that.

I’m so happy because I’m playing. I’m at an incredible moment in my life, because in addition to winning sporting titles, I’m going to be a dad.”

  1. 1:15 even Simeone knew that was very good decision made by valverde lmao!

    After this match, he (Diego Simeone) was interviewed, then said like this:
    🗣 Diego Simeone: "Fede Valverde's red card was the most important moment of the game. I told him not to worry, that anyone would've done the same in his position. He won the game."

    Also after that tackle, Valverde actually came to Morata and made apologize.

    Do you think Madrid won Supercopa De Espana was helped by Valverde's decision or not?

  2. Os imagináis el madrid perdiendo la final de copa contra el atlético en la última ocasión y con gol de morata? Eso no a sido possible gracias a valverde! Lo mejor de todo que un título ganado con semejante patada solo te cuesta 1 partido de sanción si eres del madrid!

  4. I think the new rule should be that if one commits a foul like this (so as a last man against another player who rushes into clear goal position) a penalty kick should come independently from where the foul has happened (something like this is also in basketball). As regards the cards, I do not care whether the player who commited the foul gets a yellow or a red card, the emphasis should be on the consequence that a penalty shall come. That would be the real justice. I would introduce this rule because I do not feel that it is elegant (I go further: it is disgusting) that one player commits such a tackle on purpose with unsportmanlike manner endangering the body of the other player while he is nowhere from the ball (practically he is beaten according to the rules) and then his team will be the absolute winner of the situation, in addition to that the player who commited the agressive foul becomes the man of the match! Something is not alright with this whole thing. Especially with proportionality.
