“I told him that his number 12 showed a lack of respect for me. He said two or three very ugly things that I will not repeat. He insulted me ”, said Koeman after the first defeat of his team in La Liga under the Dutch coach. “I told Bordalas to talk to his player because we cannot tolerate this kind of behavior in today’s football.”
Getafe’s coach said his player had not scolded Koeman. “I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I doubt Nyom would do such a thing. I know him well ”, said Bordalas.
Barcelona suffered its first defeat of the season after Getafe received a penalty after a foul by Frenkie de Jong at Dakonam Djené. Jaime Mata used the penalty kick.
“I don’t know if it was a penalty. It seemed they were looking for it and we fell into that trap. I don’t know whether there was a VAR or not, ”said Koeman. “I don’t want to talk about the referee, but if you’ve watched the game and saw how many fouls they committed and how few cards were dealt, you can make your own judgment.”
