Carlo Ancelotti has NOT spoken to Jude Bellingham about 'wrong' red card vs Valencia and still insists star man didn't 'insult' the referee... after he asked 'what the f*** was that?' when his Real Madrid winner was ruled out

Carlo Ancelotti says he has not spoken to Jude Bellingham about his red card and ruled-out winner against Valencia on Saturday – despite the midfielder’s fury. 

He also believes his star man did not ‘insult’ referee Jesus Gil Manzano even though he was sent off for dissent. 

Bellingham was irate when his header to snatch a 3-2 win at the Mestalla didn’t count because the referee had blown the whistle as Brahim Diaz delivered his cross. 

‘I haven’t spoken to him, I don’t need to speak to him about it. He is doing very well, Ancelotti said.

‘What happened the other day, the red card was wrong. He had a bit of frustration but he didn’t make any kind of insult.’

Under football’s rules, the goal was not supposed to stand – you can’t score once the match is over, after all.  

Real Madrid are set to appeal the sending-off and intend on citing an incident involving Mason Greenwood when they do.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side went 2-0 down in the first half at the Mestalla on Saturday, with Hugo Duro and Roman Yaremchuk on target for the hosts.

The La Liga leaders fought back however, and a brace from Vinicius brought them level before Bellingham’s last-gasp commotion. 

Seven minutes had been added on, with extra time put on top of that after the official had awarded a penalty to Valencia before he subsequently changed his mind following a review, with the clock at 98:40 at full-time.

In a statement Madrid said: ‘An unprecedented refereeing decision by Gil Manzano prevented Real Madrid’s victory against Valencia at Mestalla.’

Bellingham is now set to miss Real’s clash with Celta Vigo next week, and the ban could be extended if an appeal is ultimately unsuccessful.

However, the club are confident that the straight red will be overturned just as Greenwood’s was earlier this season.

The Manchester United loanee was one of three Getafe players to be sent off in the club’s defeat to Rayo Vallecano in January.

Greenwood had been shown a straight red for dissent but the decision was later rescinded on appeal when it was shown he said ‘f***sake’ in frustration at not being given a foul and had not directed his expletive at the official.

At the weekend, Ancelotti said: ‘He didn’t insult the referee,’ He said. ‘He was respectful. He spoke in English and just said: “It was a f***ing goal”.’

Bellingham has enjoyed a hugely successful maiden campaign in Spain since joining Los Blancos from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The England international is currently enjoying his most prolific season to date and sits top of the league’s scoring charts with 16 goals in 22 appearances.
