Valverde fouls Alvaro Morata

Real Madrid beat city rivals, Atletico Madrid on penalties to lift the Spanish Super Cup this year.
The game was a close affair, but there was a moment that could have turned the game in favour of Atleti.
Alvaro Morata was clean through on the Real Madrid goal with seemingly just the keeper to beat, however, Federico Valverde brought the former Chelsea striker down outside the box and was subsequently sent off.
Real Madrid went on to win the game, but Diego Simeone hailed the foul by Valverde as claimed he was the best player in the game.
“It was the most important piece of play.” Said the Argentine manager
“I told him [Valverde] that he did what he had to do at that moment. I think the prize for the best player makes perfect sense because Valverde won the game in this action.”
