Referee Makes A Nice Tackle On Valencia’s Sergio Canales (Video)

eduardo gonzalez slide tackles sergio canalesMany sports fans will tell you that the best officials are the ones that you barely notice during games, as they let the players play the game and refrain from having a significant influence on the final outcome.  So with that being said, what should we make of Eduardo Gonzalez’s officiating during Saturday’s La Liga match between Valencia and Granada?

While the Spanish official didn’t have much of an effect on the outcome, which saw Valencia come away with the 1-0 victory, he certainly didn’t go unnoticed out there, as he executed a picture-perfect slide-tackle on Valencia’s Sergio Canales approximately 30-yards from the Granada goal.

Gonzalez later apologized to Canales for the tackle, but he must have felt it was a clean one, as he decided not to penalize himself on the play.
