If the referee believes that he does not understand the penalty in the case, then he did so because he did not understand. From our point of view, in any case, the work we do on site is more important. Our game had a great start, even though we had difficulties after that, because Barcelona is an excellent team. But we still have many opportunities to achieve our third goal. We are very happy with our performance, and no one can say that we should owe the referee to the victory we deserve,” he said.
