Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Federico Fazio gets sent off 25 minutes into Sevilla return

Sevilla Football Club

Federico Fazio was making his first appearance on loan for Sevilla since leaving parent club Tottenham in January.

Federico Fazio did not have the Sevilla return he would have wanted, receiving a red card after just 25 minutes.

Fazio left Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day on a loan deal until the end of the season, after failing to settle at Spurs.

He had only joined the North London side 18 months ago, but could not win the faith of head coach Mauricio Pochettino, being the fourth choice centre-back by time he left.

Last night he was dismissed midway through the first half against Celta Vigo for two bookable offences, and was unable to persuade the referee to be lenient.

Immediate red cards are not new for Fazio. He was sent off on his first league debut for Tottenham last season, a defeat to Manchester City.

Sevilla managed to claim a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo despite his red card, but his dismissal was an embarrassment and leaves him facing a short suspension.

The sending off only serves to underline that Fazio can be of a tempestuous nature, and is a potentially risky starting selection for a team chasing the title.

Here is a look at how Spurs fans reacted on Twitter to his quickfire dismissal...
