Mendilibar insists Real Madrid captain Ramos 'told Eibar players it was a penalty'

Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar insists Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos told his players he handled the ball during Sunday's clash.

Real defeated Eibar 3-1 yesterday, but not before at 2-1 the hosts were denied a penalty involving Ramos after a VAR check.

Mendilibar insisted afterwards: "It hit his hand and it seemed like a penalty. Ramos also thought it was a penalty because he had discussed it with other players.

"I would like him to say what he thinks. Other times there are usually two or three minutes looking at all the cameras. Today they decided it in 20 seconds and they didn't even go to see him.

"I don't know what they said about VAR. Have you seen it so clearly that it's not a penalty? With the move of the hands these things happen. Nobody is clear what are penalties and what are not. Not even the referees are clear."
