Sporting CP defender Mathieu slams Barcelona press: I'm p***ed off with Sport

Sporting CP defender Jeremy Mathieu has hit out at the way he was treated by Barcelona for their Champions League defeat to Juventus last season.

Mathieu is still angry with the way his performance was criticised by the local media.

"The press no, just the newspaper Sport," he told Marca.

"I'm a little p***ed off with them because every time I played they always had something bad to say against me. But hey, that's how it was. Football is a team sport and when you lose it is never the fault of one person. That's my opinion."

"I have seen the match against Juventus again and everyone says that I was the problem. It is true that for the goals I was one against one and I did not win the ball, it deflected off me, but then Juve pass the ball and they could say what are Mascherano or Pique doing, but no. That's just my opinion."
