The Russian striker was sent off when he caught Figueroaâ€™s ankle with his studs and Martinez is sure the defenderâ€™s ankle would have been broken if it was not off the ground when contact was made.
"Maynor has a swollen ankle. He is very, very lucky that it wasnâ€™t ruptured. The ligaments in his ankle were stretched. From my view there was no doubt it had to be a red card. Figueroa gets in front of the striker and then touches the ball. Itâ€™s a late, late lunge into the ankle. He is fortunate the ankle is half in the air. If he had been stood on the ground it would have been a fracture."
