Barcelona manager Quique Setien did not appear too impressed with Getafe’s approach during Saturday’s 2-1 La Liga win at the Camp Nou.

Jose Bordalas’ side pressed Barca hard throughout the 90 minutes and their aggressive play did not appear to have gone down too well with Setien.

“Matches are played on the pitch. They made 29 fouls and we came away with one yellow card more than them.

“We have to take risks to beat the press. When we managed it, we were fouled. It ruins the rhythm of the game. I was complaining to the fourth official because I thought the referee should have been more severe with [them].”

Goals from Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto put Barcelona in charge of the game, but Angel Rodriguez pulled one back for Getafe to set up a tense finish.

The forward has been heavily linked with a move to Barca recently, and you can expect those rumours to continue after his goal at the Camp Nou.
