Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman blasted Allan Nyom after their shock defeat to Getafe.

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."
