Benfica defender Guilherme Siqueira insists he did not see altercation that saw Lazar Marković and Mirko Vučinić dismissed
Guilherme Siqueira insists he did not see the altercation that lead to the dismissal of Lazar Marković and Mirko Vučinić in Benfica’s 0-0 draw with Juventus.
Late in the second half, a brawl broke out on the touchline with both Marković and Vučinić, who were not on the pitch, eventually dismissed by referee Mark Clattenburg.
“When I arrived it was all over,” Siqueira said to Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia. “It’s normal there is some tension in these games, but I didn’t see anything. The losing team have something to say, that’s to be expected.”
Marković's red card was particularly costly as he will now miss the Europa League final, against Sevilla.
