“The penalty to Memphis is a joke”


  • The referee whistled a penalty to Cabrera on Memphis

  • The action leaves some doubts and Raúl de Tomás criticized him at the end of the game

Like all games in these categories, the controversy could not be absent in Barça – Espanyol. About 46 Cabrera went to the ground to clear a ball that Memphis was carrying Depay and Cerro Grande whistled a penalty. Not for everyone this play was as clear as for the referee since some like Raúl de Tomás it was a clean defender clearance.

“From the field the penalty I think it’s a joke. It may be that he will sweep you, but first he touches the ball. I do not see any intention of penalizing him and without seeing the repetition I don’t think it’s a penalty ”, the Espanyol forward explained on the pitch.

The attacker acknowledged that “maybe” they pardoned Barcelona after scoring several clear occasions, especially in the second half. “The fair thing would have been a draw. I am proud of the team because we played a great game. We have defended and attacked together, but we have to take advantage of the opportunities ”, concluded the striker.

Busquets, satisfied with the game

As the joy goes through neighborhoods, at Barça they were happy with the victory and the referee’s decision. “It seems that the defender touches the ball a little on the penalty spot but once it hits the ground it touches Memphis. SIf the referee has whistled it, he will have seen something “, said the captain culé.

Regarding the role of the team he also spoke. “The victory is very important. We are in a difficult situation and we have to be strong at home. We were able to score goals in the first half, but with a fair score they had three clear opportunities and we were saved. We needed this triumph to continue believing and little by little to be better, with a new philosophy. In the end they have brought out more offensive people, one on one and the duels. ”

“It was a toss-up because they have put more players up. I think that’s how their chances have come. We have to be more solid and stronger because they go forward. We know the philosophy of this club. Sometimes you have a better litter, sometimes you don’t. This is the right moment and I hope they continue to rise and continue to consolidate. For a club as big as Barça it is important to have a great quarry, especially now that in the situation of the club it is difficult to sign “.

The player did not finish the game and was replaced by some other annoyance. “I have a little discomfort in the soleus let’s hope it’s nothing and that we can get the people back that is out because here we will be stronger “, concluded the five culé.
