Ronald Koeman spoke in a press conference after Barcelona's loss at Getafe on Saturday. The Dutch coach was not in agreement with some of the refereeing decisions in the game and also explained why he was angry with the home team's full-back Allan Nyom.
At the end of the game, which Getafe won 1-0, Koeman was seen in conversation with his opposite number Jose Bordalas. The Barça coach later explained what he said.
"I told him that Nyom had shown me a lack of respect," he said. "He said ugly things to me which I will not repeat. That's what I told (Bordalas).!
Nyom was heavily involved in the game. He elbowed Leo Messi in the face in the first half and also could have given a penalty away for a challenge on Ansu Fati. He spent the 90 minutes making fouls and arguing.
On the referee's decisions, which included giving Getafe a penalty which won them the game, Koeman said "I don't like to speak about the officials, I think if you see the game, the fouls, the cards, you can give your opinion, I don't want to, it's not an easy job for the referees."
However, he couldn't resist a dig: "There's a referee, two assistants, a fourth official and VAR... well, I don't know if we had VAR tonight, but the most important thing is to look at yourselves."
