The youngster was shown a second yellow during Rayo Vallecano's 1-0 defeat at Almeria on Sunday, but referee reported that he had ‘argued in a loud voice…for about a minute’ that it was only his first booking.

Saul has also been handed a €700 (£595) fine for his actions and his club have been hit with a €600 (£510) penalty too.
