Juanfran Torres will be able to play against FC Barcelona this upcoming Saturday after his booking in Málaga was dismissed.
Last week, the full-back saw his fifth yellow card for “knocking down an opposition player in the dispute of the ball”, according to the referee’s official report.
Atlético stated that the reason that Juanfran received the yellow card did not correspond with what the referee, Teixeira Vitienes had written down.
After the committee reviewed the claim presented by Atleti, they announced on Wednesday that the yellow card would be rescinded.
Juanfran was obviously delighted with the news.
“I would like to thank everyone for their messages,” he stated via Twitter.
“I am very happy to be able to be at the coach’s disposal for the HUGE match this coming Saturday.”
