Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has insisted he was disrespected by the fourth official, after being sent off as they lost 2-1 to Granada on Thursday.

Lionel Messi gave Barca an early lead at Camp Nou, but goals from Darwin Marchis and Jorge Molina after the break denied Koeman’s side the chance to overtake Atletico Madrid at the top of the table.

Koeman’s frustrations boiled over late on, when he was sent to the stands by referee Pablo Gonzalez Fuertes, following a confrontation with the fourth official.

Fuerte’s match report said he dismissed the Dutchman for saying “What a character” to his assistant following repeated warnings about his behaviour.

Koeman said after the game: “According to the report I disrespected the fourth official.

“I don’t understand because I didn’t insult him at all. If anything, the way he spoke to me was disrespectful.

“I spoke to him about various incidents but always respectfully. I’d like to know what words I supposedly used because I didn’t say anything ugly. It’s incredible. But if the fourth official wants to be the centre of attention…”

Pending an appeal, Koeman will not be on the bench for Barca’s next two games against Valencia and Atletico Madrid.
