Is that valid? I'm always confused on whistles and restarts

So the referee blew his whistle for a foul, but apparently didn't indicate to decide the reset at his whistle. But he also didn't not indicate to decide when the reset was to occur, which seems to leave Sevilla waiting for a decision and then unable to defend any sort of set play whatsoever.

I've never understood how this can happen when it seems every other time, the referee takes forever to allow the restart to happen. It can't simply just be at the attacking team's whim, that seems incredibly disorderly.
