Euro 2024: Two Spanish referees sent home


UEFA have sent two Spanish referees home following complaints over their officiating at Euro 2024.

According to the UK Metro, they are Alejandro Hernandez and Jesus Gil Manzano.

Hernandez was the VAR official who ignored Scotland’s penalty claim in their 1-0 defeat to Hungary last Sunday.

Manzano was criticised for his error in France’s 1-0 win over Austria.

Both referees will take no part in the knockout stages of the tournament.

Manzano’s two assistants, Diego Barbero and Angel Nevado, have also been sent home.

This leaves only Martinez Munuera, a VAR official, as Spain’s sole representative for the remainder of Euro 2024.
