Mariano Pernia hit back at the Atletico Madrid boo-boys after netting the equaliser in last night's 1-1 draw with Real Mallorca.

The Spain international wing-back said: "When I celebrated the goal, I was angry. I was wrong, but I believe the players did not deserve to be booed and whistled. But the fans pay for their tickets and can do what they want."

Pernia added: "If the team continues to play like we did in the second-half, we will win many games this season."
