The race storm around Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has reignited.
Fabregas denied the claims after the game - and again yesterday after being grilled about it.
He said: "I spoke with Kanoute and we said what we had to say.
"Like every football player, I'm no saint, but I never said anything racist."
Kanoute sparked the bust-up by kicking the ball off the spot as Lionel Messi prepared to take a penalty.
