Sydney, Feb 21: Manchester City’s justification after losing in the Champions League to the Spanish champions calling it an officiating error, earned them a ‘losers’ title from Barcelona’s midfielder Sergio Busquets.
According to Sport24, Manuel Pellegrini, City’s manager, said that Martin Demichelis sent off before the hour mark of Barca’s 2-0 first-leg away win in the last 16 by referee Jonas Eriksson ‘decided the game’.
However, Busquets reportedly called City ‘losers’ for making excuses on the defeat.
An investigation was also opened by UEFA this Thursday against Pellegrini for his outburst, the report added. (ANI)
