Getafe furious with 'theatrics' of Valencia defender Marchena

Getafe striker Roberto Soldado was furious with his dismissal during yesterday's 3-0 home defeat to Valencia.

Soldado was sent off for headbutting Valencia defender Carlos Marchena and snapped: "Everyone has seen what happened. I never touched Marchena and he threw himself to the floor. Not only me, many people know what Marchena is like. The referees should also know."

Getafe coach Victor Munoz also said: "When Marchena is on the field he can be very theatrical."
