David Beckham was sent off in Real Madrid's Spanish Cup win over Valencia but afterwards said he was disappointed with the decision.
Beckham got his marching orders for two yellow cards
Beckham was booked for dissent in the 68th minute and got a second yellow for a foul three minutes from time.
"I was happy with the result but disappointed with the sending off," Beckham said afterwards.
"I didn't think it was deserved because I was running back and I just clipped
his ankle as I ran back with him."
The England captain added: "I knew I was going off because the referee [Medina Cantalejo] had been like that all day, not just with Madrid, but with Valencia as well.
"I don't know what the first card was for. Even if I had said something to
the referee he wouldn't have understood it.
"It's different for English players in Spain. The mentality is different.
"There are things you can get away with in the Premier League that you can't do
"I wouldn't have got sent off in England, but I have no qualms with the
referee, it's his decision."
Madrid won the match 3-0 thanks to goals from
Raul, Ronaldo and Luis Figo.
