In the game against Alaves, Messi vented his dissatisfaction with the referee, and there was a view that Messi should get a red card for this.
In the 39th minute of the game, Messi kicked the ball in his direction when the referee Hernandez-Hernandez passed by, and the referee immediately showed him the yellow card.
Messi is so dissatisfied because De Jong was overthrown by the opponent in the penalty area and neither the referee nor VAR made any expressions. In response to his move, Marca’s referee expert Andujar said: “He should be sent off with a red card. Although the ball did not hit Hernandez, his intentional attack on the referee should Straight red ends."
