Quique Setien’s assistant, Eder Sarabia, could not hide his frustrations on the touchline during Sunday’s Clasico against Real Madrid.

Spanish TV channel Vamos captured Sarabia’s performance at the Santiago Bernabeu where he was caught raging about his team’s display.

Sarabia is caught bemoaning a pass from from the back “it’s not a pass to Busi, it’s a pass to the interiors” and really lets loose when Antoine Griezmann missed a first-half chance.

The assistant coach is also spotted urging his players to “shoot at goal” and also has a real complaint about one player (although it’s not clear who it is): “He’s not doing any of the things he’s supposed to be doing!”

There’s also a conversation between Sarabia and Setien where the assistant coach tells his boss that Barca are sitting too deep which is causing problems.

Ben Hayward at the Evening Standard provided a full translation of Sarabia’s words which you can check out below:

Real Madrid’s win puts Los Blancos one point ahead of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with 12 games left to play.
