Girona midfielder Pere Pons was happy to offer his view on his clash with Clement Lenglet which saw the Barcelona defender sent off the first half of the 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

The two players came together on 34 minutes and Lenglet was dismissed after a VAR check. Pons reckons the Frenchman was unlucky and said he was fouled first.

“Yes, I received a knock (from the elbow) but when I got up, I said sorry to Lenglet and I offered my hand because the foul was against us at first and I thought it was my foul,” he said.

”No one is to blame and in the end it goes to a third party, to VAR. I didn’t notice the contact with the elbow.”

Lenglet is now set for a spell on the sidelines after receiving a straight red card which will be a real disappointment for the Frenchman on his first La Liga start for Barcelona.
