Today, Barcelona played a 1-1 draw with Espanyol in the 15th round of La Liga. Match referee Antonio Mateu Laos showed 16 yellow and 2 red cards.
Barcelona head coach Xavi commented on the work of the referee:
“Today Laos lost control of the game. The game is out of control. Laos is a referee who calmly makes decisions, but today his game was out of control, but I don’t blame him for anything.
You ask me about the referee and I can’t control him, he has to come out and talk about his decisions. If Laos were speaking at a press conference right now, I would ask him why the game is out of control.”
