Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho says Tottenham striker Peter Crouch didn't deserve to be sent off.

Crouch was dismissed after two reckless challenges inside the first 15 minutes of Spurs' 4-0 Champions League humiliation.

“I don’t know if Peter Crouch should have been sent off,” former Chelsea defender Carvalho said afterwards.

“The first one was a yellow card. The second one? I don’t know. Maybe the second one was unlucky for him and unfair for his team-mates.”
