Moment of tension: the clash between Xavi and the DT of Elche after the triumph of Barcelona

The coach of Elche CF, Francisco, valued the controversy of the defeat (1-2) against Barca this Sunday, almost exclusively in a press conference afterwards and regretting that the referee did not check his decision when the locals claimed, and shortly before in the Memphis Depay penalty. Precisely, that was one of the issues that he claimed at the end of the game to Xavi Hernandezin a quite tense intersection.

The Elche coach reproached the Barça coach and he replied in an intense exchange of impressions that did not go any further. Both coaches downplayed the matter in the press room.

Nothing has happened. It was the tension of the match. We asked them to throw the ball out, nothing more”, explained the coach of Elche Francisco.

It’s nothing, just don’t give it more importance, they are situations resulting from tension, I have the utmost respect for Francisco and with Peter Milla we have mutual friends, that’s why we were making jokesXavi said.

Barcelona overcame (1-2) an important test at the Martínez Valero this Sunday against Elche, where they got the three points with a comeback in the second half in a good game, along the lines of the last, to strengthen the ‘ Top 4′ of LaLiga Santander.

Xavi Hernández’s team saved the dynamic and the good moment by a penalty that Memphis converted in the 84th minute and that Hernández Hernández pointed out with the help of the VAR.
