Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho commented on the incident during last night`s post match press conference.
“The players said that Coentrão did not say what the official thought he said.”
However, Perez has a different story, in an official statement given to the media.
“In the 88th minute, the player (5) Fabio Coentrão Alexandre Da Silva was sent off for the following reason: When the match was stopped and I was near the bench he insulted me, saying ‘Eres un hijo de puta’ (you`re a motherfucker).
Despite seeing red, Coentrão will be available for the 2nd leg of the Spanish Super Copa against Barcelona on Wednesday evening, but will serve his suspension against Granada the following Sunday, also at the Santiago Bernabeu.
