JIM: Red card changed things

Real Valladolid boss Juan Ignacio Martinez lamented his side’s red card as they lost 1-0 to Almeria on Saturday.

Patrick Ebert was sent off late in the second half for the Pucela, as they went down to the newly-promoted team.

“Maybe if we hadn’t gone a man down then things might have been different,” he told a Press conference.

“But Almeria won in Valencia and have also played a good match here.

“The result is done and can’t be changed. We were upset with the red card, but I won’t talk about the referee.”
