In 75 games with the Red Devils, this had never happened to him.Roberto Martinez received a red card deep in injury time for ruining a match. “According to Eden, I have to pay for dinner now,” the national coach could still laugh about it.

With his cloak peeled off and what looked like lightning, he rushed into the tunnel.

In the 97th minute, Roberto Martinez turned red from the Turkish referee somewhat surprisingly. Reason: The national coach deliberately chases the ball, slowing the game down.

It may have been yellow, but it was never red. I was just trying to slow down the progress of the game a bit.

“But I didn’t think it was a red card,” the Spaniard told VTM. “Maybe yellow, but never red. I tried to slow the game down a bit. (Laughter) The captain (Eden Hazard, ed.) said that in Belgium you have to pay for dinner with a red card. .I do.’ That. “

Due to exclusion, T2 Thierry Henry will probably have to coach the Devils in Amsterdam.

Despite the impressive moment, Martinez was pleased with his performance against Wales.

“We saw different halves. We found space well before half-time with a lot of chances and two goals. Then we looked for a bit of one-on-one and tried to slow the ball down.”

“I am happy that I played very well after the goal.
