Iturralde González has been the protagonist of a very harsh video on Real Madrid TV, in which the official channel of the white team reveals the “plentyfrom “outcrying errors” that from his point of view the referee committed and that they harmed the club.
This is how the chain responded to the former referee, who defended the honesty of the arbitration group after the RMTV video dedicated to Clos Gómez, head of VAR, and revealed that Florentino Pérez had asked him to beep in the same way the entity he chairs and FC Barcelona in a separate room after a match at the Santiago Bernabéu.
“This is Iturralde González, the referee who has finally taken off his mask, and is now dedicated to attack Real Madrid from the media. Someone who, fortunately for Real Madrid, is already retired and now only vents his anti-Madridism in the media and not on the pitch,” the clip begins.
The white team emphasizes that its balance with the Biscayan, who was active for 17 seasons, is 30 wins, five draws and 14 losses. In that time, he sanctioned Meringue players with 110 yellow cards and 10 red ones.
“He was a bad referee for some, and very good for others“concludes the video, which includes failures such as a penalty not taken by Víctor Valdés against Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2010/2011 season, a goal conceded to David Villa, who started offside, in the same match, or somewhat annulled in the Super Cup final against Zaragoza in which he points out the previous foul instead of letting the action continue.
Also criticize some statements of Iturralde, like some in which he is “proud” of being the referee with whom Real Madrid has lost the most times, or of having sent off Roberto Carlos for a tackle on Luis Figo, “in which, by the way, he played the ball,” he recalls.
