Alaves's Vidal furious with referee and Sergio Ramos

The former Barcelona man was denied a "clear" penalty at 0-0

Aleix Vidal was heavily involved as Alaves were narrowly beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid in La Liga on Saturday. The Catalan winger wanted a penalty when the game was still goalless and later celebrated his side's equaliser with an ugly gesture, which he explained as unintentional.

The first issue he touched on after the game was the penalty. He didn't get the spot-kick and was instead booked, despite there appearing to be contact and the decision going to VAR. "I expected everything except a yellow card for diving. It seems you have to do damage to the rival for the whistle to go." 

He continued: "It's clear for me. It's a penalty, but we can't do anything now. I told the referee it was not a yellow card. He's made his decision and it's on his conscience."  

On his celebration after Lucas Perez's equaliser, Vidal explained: "[It wasn't directed] at the stands, no. They're supporting us a lot.

"I did it unconsciously because of the emotion of scoring. It had no intention. [Directing it towards Sergio] Ramos? Let him complain."
