Lopetegui will repeat the stand in a big game
The coach, who saw the fifth yellow of the course in front of the Athletic, will not be on the bench Valdebebas, as it happened in the Camp Nou
Julen Lopetegui, coach of Sevilla, will not be able to sit on the bench of Alfredo Di Stéfano in Valdebebas, after seeing the fifth yellow of the course in the match that measured his players with Athletic last Monday. Gil Manzano He showed yellow cardboard to the Basque once the game was over, this being the fifth of the year for Lopetegui. Competition certified his penalty game, although the coach continues to maintain that he only approached the referee to greet him, without making any observations.

With his wireless headphones and instructing the men on the bench to correct anything he did not like. And again he will have to be with the active phone and trying to organize the team away from the grass. And that, in a coach that intervenes so much in the football of Sevilla, can be a drag on Andalusian interests against the Real Madrid.
Precisely in the last game, this time in the Santiago Bernabeu, the sevillista coach ended up very angry with the referee’s performance after a goal disallowed to De Jong. It has been seen this season, without an audience in the stands, a Lopetegui truly angry and protesting many arbitration actions, with dialectical duels with referees or rivals on the benches, as in that duel against him. Getafe de Bordalás. He was expelled against the I raised and could not sit on the bench Camp Nou. Now he has seen the fifth yellow and will not be able to do it in Valdebebas. The Seville is orphaned on the bench in a vital appointment.
