Footage of Moyes climbing into the stands after his dismissal, eating some crisps offered to him by a Sociedad supporter in the process, went viral after the match – but those actions have also proven costly, with Moyes handed a one match ban for his dismissal and an additional match for his actions in climbing over a barrier and into the stands.

Moyes was frustrated with a number of decisions during an entertaining 2-2 draw against El Submarino Amarillo, a result that saw his side exit the competition 4-3 on aggregate, and his frustrations came to a head nine minutes from time when he gestured that the linesman needed glasses following a contentious offside decision, earning a dismissal from referee Carlos Velasco Carballo in the process.
