Sandro Tonali might have saved his former captain Davide Calabria from getting a red card during last night’s game, a video has shown.
Towards the end of the first half, in the 40th minute, the Spanish referee Sanchez Martinez whistled for a dubious foul. Calabria wanted to speak to him about it, and despite him wearing the armband he was yellow carded for exaggerated protests.
After the yellow, Calabria continued to remonstrate with the referee, even walking up to him. It was then when Tonali intervened, pushing Calabria away to avoid him getting a further punishment.
