Keidi Bare, a 20-year-old Atletico Madrid B-team player, delivered an expletive-ridden act of dissent to a referee during a recent match.
Atletico Madrid midfielder Keidi Bare has been handed a whopping nine-match ban after the 20-year-old delivered an expletive-ridden act of dissent to a referee during a B-team game.
The Albanian was initially booked for dissent just 14 minutes into Sunday's game against Deportivo La Coruna's B team, however that didn't stop him from continually debating the decision which was always going to end up in a second yellow card.
Referee Jose Joaquin Gallego Gambin's report revealed the words of Bare, pinpointing why further punishment was necessary.
"Once he was expelled," wrote the official, "He addressed me in the following terms: 'You're a fool, you're a fool, you son of a bi**h, you're a son of a bi**h, I s**t on your f*****g mother, I s**it on your f*****g mother!
"At the end of the first half, when we were preparing to enter our dressing room, the player was at the door, again projecting towards us in the terms discussed above, repeatedly."
As a result of these words, the midfielder will be sit out one match for the accumulation of yellow cards, and further eight for his behavior. It is refreshing to see dissent of this magnitude being punished accurately, as behavior like this to an official is beyond unacceptable.
Bare has made only two appearances for the Atletico first team this season, both coming in the Copa del Rey. It is a huge blow for the Atletico B side, missing the final four games of the season mean Bare will miss the team's push for promotion from Segunda Division B.
