The sanctionary committee of the Spanish Football Federation has suspended José Antonio Reyes for one match, the minimal punishment in la Liga for a direct red card.
The Andalusian was sent off in Sunday’s match against Real Zaragoza.
Reyes clashed into defender Matteo Contini and was given his marching orders by referee Muñiz Fernández.
It was already Reyes’ fourth expulsion as an Atlético player, the last one he received was in last year’s away match against Zaragoza.
AS calculates that our fiery winger collects a red card every 819 minutes, once every 9 matches.
However, Reyes is also one of the most fouled players. This season only Espanyol’s Callejón (25) has received more calls than Reyes (20).
Reyes will be disappointed to miss out on the clash against his former club, Sevilla.
