Barça: Xavi's rant on refereeing


By: Manu Tournoux

Last night, FC Barcelona sent a strong message to the rest of Europe on the pitch of Atlético Madrid. Large winner of the Colchoneros (0-3), the Catalan club pocketed three precious points in the race for the podium, or even the title. Thus, the result is more important than his expulsion according to Xavi, the Blaugrana coach. The Spanish coach was sent off his bench just before the break (42nd).

“It’s the least important, the important thing is the team. The fourth referee told me it was because of the gestures. I didn't say anything, I'm trying to be passionate. I live it, I want my team to win. The expulsion was unnecessary and unjust, but we must accept it. I didn't speak to the referee.”he denounced.
